Non-Domestic MEES

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) apply to all non-domestic properties (i.e. properties that are not a dwelling) in England and Wales which are let under any type of tenancy which are required to have a Commercial EPC (subject to several exemptions). This includes individual properties, such as retail units situated within larger buildings, which are required to have their own individual EPC. Landlords of non-domestic property which is not legally required to have an EPC are not bound by the prohibition on letting Sub-Standard Property

Dynamic Simulation Modelling (level 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.

Display Energy Certificates

Display Energy Certificates are are 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).

Commercial EPCs

To ensure our EPCs are accurate and audit compliant we use DesignBuilder 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 free government issue iSBEM used by the majority of active assessors.
