I am a Building Surveyor based primarily in the Scottish Borders however, I regularly carry out work throughout Scotland and the North of England. I specialise in all things 'energy' related and I am fully qualified to carry out domestic, non-domestic and new build EPCs. I am also fully qualified and insured to carry out the below services: - Legionella Risk Assessments - Asbestos Surveys (both Management and Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys) - Air permeability testing - Full range of Building Surveys
Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, type of dwelling, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. The entire onsite process generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour. Following the assessment, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Domestic EPC register.
The EPC should not be read as a comment on the overall condition of the property, nor will it cover any items that would be included in a building survey.
An EPC is a legal requirement for the property to be marketed for sale or let. The certificate is valid for 10 years although it is recommended to renew the certificate every time works are carried out to the property that could improve its energy performance ie. replacement boiler/windows, loft or wall insulation.
Our EPC prices are calculated on the number of bedrooms, location and availability and carried out by professional, verified assessors who are certified with the official EPC Register.
What does an EPC contain?
- A record of how energy efficient a building is and its environmental impact
- Information on the property’s typical energy costs
- Suggested recommendations on reducing energy use and saving money
- An energy efficiency rating of the property from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)
Upon confirmation of the service, an accredited Energy Assessor visits the property to collect the required data for assessing energy features based on the construction, data, and relevant fittings (i.e, heating systems, insulation, windows, fixed outlets, lighting, etc). Please allow easy and full access for the assessor to inspect all heating and lighting fixtures/fittings including the boilers, hot water cylinders and the electric meter. Given the size and complexity of some commercial buildings, this inspection can take a number of hours or even days. Following the assessment, a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (which includes two documents: an EPC certificate and a separate Recommendations Report) is generated using government-approved software, which typically takes 1-3 business days, and will be emailed to you once ready. Once the EPC is lodged it will appear on the national Commercial EPC register.
A Non-Domestic EPC is a legal requirement for all commercial buildings exceeding 50 sq meters. The law states that a Non-Domestic EPC is required when you market the premises for let or sale, a building under construction is finished or where there are changes to the number of parts used for separate occupation and these changes involve providing or extending fixed heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation systems.
The EPC must also be displayed in your commercial building if the total useful floor area is over 500 sq meters, the building is frequently visited by the public or an EPC has already been produced for the building’s sale, rental or construction
The certificate is valid for 10 years although a new certificate may be required if the building is subject to renovations, alterations, extensions etc.
Commercial buildings are divided into three categories for EPC purposes, depending on size, heating and cooling systems, etc. For further information please get in touch with us.

Kieran was excellent and went through all the steps which he was going to do with us. He then did all the work without any further help and sent down his report later the same day. The only problem is that the certificate from head office didn’t come through just an error. Cheers Jim Murray
Kieran is respectful, efficient and trustworthy and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services. Thanks
Still waiting on the VAT receipt!
