|Do you neeD an energy Performance certificate?|
If you are building, selling or letting a building over 50m² then you need an EPC.
ILES Consulting Ltd are fully accredited to provide Non Domestic Energy Performance Certificates. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Since 1 October 2008, EPCs have been a legal requirement when any commercial building over 50m² is built, sold or let. An EPC sets out the energy efficiency grade of a commercial building by rating it from A-G with A being the most efficient. This is based on the performance potential of the building itself (the fabric) and its services (such as heating, ventilation and lighting). There are three types of buildings under the EPC requirements which relate to the complexity of the building being assessed and will affect the type of EPC assessor you will need:
SMALL SIMPLE BUILDINGS
LARGE, MORE COMPLEX BUILDINGS
Trading Standards have the duty of enforcement and the penalty for not making an EPC available to any prospective buyer or tenant when selling or letting non-dwellings is up to £5000 (depending on the value of the building). In addition to the penalty, it is still necessary to commission the EPC.
