For further information on EPC’s, please see the Non-Domestic Energy Performance Register, which states… “From 1st October 2008, all non-domestic buildings on construction, sale and rent will require a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (NDEPC) and a Recommendation Report (RR). This information will help owners and occupiers make their building more energy efficient and allow potential buyers and tenants to compare the energy performance of different buildings. This is being phased in from 6th April 2008 for buildings with a floor area of > 10000m². In July 2008, this will extend to buildings with a floor area of > 2500m².”

You can also search for our assessors via the CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) Certification website, which can be found via this link and entering our postcode of B3 1DW in the search box.
