All commercial buildings now require an energy performance certificate when they are newly constructed, sold or rented. This means any non-dwelling, i.e. industrial units, retail outlets and offices.

See a sample energy performance certificate:
Which buildings are exempt?
- Places of worship
- Stand-alone building of less than 50 square meters (except for dwellings)
- Temporary buildings with a planned time of use of 2 years or less
- Particular building with a low energy demand (e.g. barns)
- In some circumstances buildings to be demolished are exempt from requiring a certificate
- An EPC is not required for any (off-plan) sales or letting before the construction of the building has been completed.
A commercial (non-domestic) EPC is valid for ten years, or until a newer EPC is prepared.
What's involved with an assessment?
Our energy assessor will look at the following building elements:
- The building size and orientation (if you have building plans available, we won't have to measure the building. This will reduce the cost of the assessment)
- Thermal characteristics of the building
- Heating and hot water systems
- Air conditioning
- Ventilation (mechanical & natural)
- Any renewable energy sources
