  1. Why Commercial EPC ? www.commercial-london-epc.co.uk

  2. What is a Commercial EPC? • A commercial Energy Performance Certificate is a document intended to give an estimate of the energy usage and CO2 emissions of a building and is based upon an asset rating system. The certificate calculates the energy efficiency of the building asset. • The Commercial EPC is information for the prospective purchaser or tenants and can be used to compare one building against another of similar type. • If you are selling, renting or building commercialproperty, you need a Commercial EPC. • All commercial properties with heating/conditioning systems require an EPC when being offered for sale

  3. When do I need a Commercial EPC? • From 6th April 2008 EPCs are required for commercial property prior to sale or let. • An EPC should be provided to a prospective buyer or tenant at the earliest opportunity and no later than when a viewing is conducted or when written information is provided about the building. Even if no marketing takes place it must be provided before entering into a contract to sell or let. • In the case of auctions, the EPC should be available in the pack and if room sizes are mentioned in the catalogue, then the energy rating should be shown.

  4. Which buildings do not require an EPC? • Places of worship. • Temporary buildings with a planned time of use less than two years. • Stand alone (entirely detached) buildings with a total useful floor area of less than 50m2 that are not dwellings. • Industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings with low energy demand. • On sale or rent for buildings due to be demolished.

  5. Levels of Commercial EPCs • As part of its strategy to implement the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the UK Government introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for all commercial and other non domestic premises as of April 2008. • The commercial EPC survey must be carried out by a qualified non domestic energy assessor (NDEA) who is accredited either to levels 3, 4 or 5 depending on the type of premises being surveyed. This certificate will be required upon construction, sale or lease for all non-dwellings, including retail units, office, industrial units, commercial buildings, warehouses, and supermarkets.

  6. Level 3 Level 3 relates to simple existing buildings with commonly occurring characteristics that can be modeled using the Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) Typical examples of level three buildings include • Shops • Takeaways • Small Restaurants

  7. Level 4 Level 4 relates to new and more complex existing buildings with substantial air conditioning systems that can be modeled using SBEM. Typical examples of level four buildings include • Large restaurants • Factors • Auto Mechanic Garages • Offices

  8. Level 5 Level 5 relates to the most complex new and existing buildings that will need to be modeled using Dynamic Simulation models. One of the main defining factors that will place a building into the level five categories is the complexity and amount of glass in the structure. Typical examples of level five buildings include • Modern Libraries • Modern Offices • Shopping Malls • Modern University Buildings
