New Build Improvements Report

A building energy rating is the No.1 thing you should do before you decide to build. Since the 1st of January 2007, it is required by law that all new homes for which planning permission has been applied for must have an energy rating. When building a new house you should be aiming for a B2 rating or better. By proper planning and following some simple guidelines these high ratings can be achieved at very little extra cost. A home built with a good energy rating in mind will be easier to heat and have lower energy costs.

Our team can work with architects and builders and any trade professionals at the design stage of your project to provide you with the best possible advice to achieve the highest energy rating for the lowest investment.

We provide expert energy advice on:

  • Design advice from project conception to completion
    • Building Form
    • Building Fabric
    • Thermal Insulation of the Building Fabric
    • Orientation
    • Ventilation Heat Loss & Systems
    • Lighting
    • Space & Water Heating
    • Heating system control
    • Energy Management
  • Compliance with Building Regulations TGD Part L
  • Renewable Technologies
    • Solar panels
    • Wood pellet boilers
    • Wind Turbines
    • Geothermal heating systems

We will provide a detailed report investigating a number of alterative scenario's outlining the effect of each on a buildings energy rating. This report will give a step by step plan on how your house will achieve it optimum energy rating. The result is a combined energy strategy optimised to your building to give peak energy performance and the highest possible energy ratings.

We can also provide a Quantity Surveying service that can be accompanied with the Pre-Build advisory service.
