Our services explained
Our Services EPC Energy Performance Certificate
A big part of our services is the Energy Performance Certificate or EPC for short.
An Energy Performance Certificate or EPC for short is a document that shows the energy efficiency of a property giving a rating from A to G with A being the most efficient and G being the least efficient.
It will outline the rough energy costs for the property. Furthermore, it provides practical recommendations on what could be done to improve the rating and save money on energy bills.
An EPC or SAP EPC is required when a property is sold, rented, built, extended, converted and when renewable technologies are installed.
The minimum standards to rent or lease a property is an E rating and this will increase to a C within the next few years.
More about SAP Calculations and SAP Energy Performance Certificates
SAP Calculations is the Governments method for calculating the predicted energy efficiency of residential buildings.
SAP calculations come in two formats; L1A SAP Calculations for new builds and L1B SAP Calculations for extensions and conversions. The primary purpose of the calculations is to produce a SAP Energy Performance Certificate also known as a SAP EPC.
SBEM Calculations & Part L Reports
Residential properties require SAP Calculations but what is required for commercial units. SBEM Calculations and Part L Reports are needed for all new built commercial properties. They are sometimes required for conversions and extensions.
Simplified Building Energy Modelling or SBEM for short is the approved national calculation methodology used to calculate the energy efficiency of commercial properties.
SBEM calculates the monthly energy use and carbon emissions of a building based on its size, orientation, geometry, construction and systems.

What are Heat Loss Calculations?
Heat Loss Calculations for a building are required to enable an installer to correctly size a heat pump. These calculations works out the peak heat load by measuring all of the fabric and ventilation heat losses for the coldest day of the year. This is based on geographical location. For example, the same house could have a different peak heat loss in London compared to Glasgow.
The calculation works out all of the heat losses for each room and then allows you to size the emitters for those rooms. These could be radiators, underfloor heating or fan convectors.
In addition to this page, feel free read more about Heat Loss Calculations on our HLC service page.
What is a Retrofit Assessment?
Another one of our services includes the retrofit energy assessment.
A Retrofit Assessment is an in-depth assessment of a property. This is based on the following criteria.
- An Occupancy Assessment
- An Energy Assessment
- A condition assessment of the property
What are Water Efficiency Calculations?
Our services include water efficiency calculations also known as water calculations or water calcs. Building control require Water Calculations for all new dwellings including conversions. This is to ensure that each occupant uses less than 125 litres of water per day.
Asides from the national mandatory requirements, local planning authorities can be more stringent. Furthermore, they can set water consumption at a rate of 105 litres per person per day.
In addition, you can read more about Water Calculations on our Water Calculations service page.
Our Services – Legionella Risk Assessments
Legionella bacteria can cause severe health conditions including the potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease. More over, every business owner and landlord is legally required to keep reduce or eliminate the risk.
The only way this can be achieved is to conduct a legionella risk assessment. Above all, this will identify potential issues and to keep employees, customers, and others safe.
In addition, you can read more about Legionella Risk Assessments, by visiting our Legionella Risk Assessment service page.
What are Floor and Lease Plans?
A floor plan shows you the layout of a property from above. Floor plans show the location of walls, windows, doors, and stairs. Furthermore, they show fixed installations in kitchens and bathrooms.
A Lease Plan is a scale drawing of land and buildings described in your Lease. It is needed when a lease for 7 or more years has been granted on a property. It is a requirement to register your Lease with the Land Registry.
In addition, you can read more about Floor and Lease Plans, by visiting our Floor/Lease Plans service page.
