New Build EPC
Elvet Chartered Surveyors have a team of qualified and accredited On-Construction Domestic Energy Assessors who are able to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and SAP Calculations for new build dwellings and domestic conversions.
We have experience of working closely with architects, developers and private home owners to ensure compliance with Building Regulations - (Approved Document Part L1a - Conversion of Fuel and Power in New Dwellings).
Our building surveyors are able to provide friendly expert advice during the design stage to produce a Predictive Energy Assessment (PEA), which gives our clients confidence that the ‘as-built’ property will meet the minimum energy standards dictated by the government upon completion. This early dialogue allows for corrective measures to be incorporated within the design, which saves time, money and effort on site.
Similarly, we are accustomed to undertaking a value engineering exercise which entails running various scenarios within the SAP software by substituting various materials and measuring the impact on the thermal efficiency, cost and overall energy performance. This methodology protects the client from overpaying for products and materials, which are over-specified within the design.
