“Very professional service at a reasonable price and some great advice to help improve EPC rating in the future.”
“Dealing with Freeman Surveying was straight forward, making initial contact through their website. I had a personal e-mail response promptly and the commercial EPC was carried out a few days later. I will definitely employ Freeman Consulting to carry out further surveys within our portfolio.”
“Adam has done several reports for me now. Always totally professional and efficient. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough”
Based in Newport and Bristol, Freeman Surveying Ltd specialise in the rapid turnaround of BREEAM ENE and HEA credits evidence, Display Energy Certificates, Commercial EPCs & SBEM Calculations. We undertake all work directly, do not use sub-contractors and are accredited to certify ANY building in England, Wales or Scotland regardless of size or complexity.
Keeping compliance simple
Turnkey solutions for Landlords, Solicitors & Developers
We provide all the necessary building certification necessary under the British Government Directive “Energy Performance in Non-Domestic Buildings”. Services include Commercial EPCs (up to levels 5), Display Energy Certificates, BREEAM credit evidence (HEA and ENE) and SBEM/BRUKL calculation reports.
Simplified quoting with a 2 hour response
We know how challenging it can be to work with certain elements of this industry and that is why we make sure that dealing with us is quick and painless. Pick up the phone and we’ll give you a price and a guaranteed schedule there and then. No forms, no complex questions.
Fast-Track, 24 hour turnaround available
We appreciate that our clients are often not made aware of their responsibilities as Sellers, landlords or Developers and are only informed of the need to provide various certificates and reports at the last minute. We’ll make sure that you have the certification or reports you require to satisfy the Solicitors or Building Control Officer, on time and to budget.
Commercial (Non-Domestic) EPCs
To ensure our EPCs are accurate and audit compliant we use DesignBuilder Software for all our thermal modelling. This means our EPCs are much quicker to produce and often deliver a higher rating than certificates produced using the inaccurate and frankly atrocious free government issue iSBEM used by the majority of assessors.
Display Energy Certificates (DECs)
Display Energy Certificates are a legal requirement for all public body occupied buildings where the building has a total floor area > 250 m2. If there are multiple buildings on the same site (e.g. a school or hospital) then certificates will be required for each separate building (i.e. unconnected by covered walkways as a minimum).
Targeted credits for BREEAM Assessors, HEA 01 & 04, ENE 01 & 04. SBEM and DSM modelling as required.
We can also provide final non-domestic EPC and both Design and As-Built SBEM/DSM/BRUKL calcs (for Building Control sign-off) as a natural component of the BREEAM credit evidence – this works out significantly cheaper than using separate assessors and ensures that all the BER/TER ratings of the various reports are aligned for sign-off.
Dynamic Simulation Modelling (Lvl 5)
Level 5 commercial buildings are considered to be the most complex buildings to produce energy assessments for. A Level 5 non-domestic property can be identified from specific features such as atrium’s, automatic blind control and ventilation with enhanced thermal coupling. It is illegal to deliberately lodge a level 4 EPC against a level 5 building.
BRUKL Reports (SBEM Calculations)
SBEM Calculations (also known as BRUKL Reports) provide an analysis of the predicted energy performance of a building and are required by Building Regulations to comply with the Part L section of the regulations. When the building is complete our reports can be converted to a lodged Commercial EPC.
