Applied Link is committed in finding practical solutions to assist your company while meeting all necessary Government legislations.
With the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) being introduced in the UK on January 2006 with an aim of increasing energy efficiency standards and reducing the high level of energy consumed in buildings, energy certification schemes were introduced to assist with the control and drive to reduce consumption.
It is worth mentioning that Building Control will enforce certification of newly constructed buildings with Trading Standards enforcing certification of existing buildings. Penalty fines will apply if a valid certificate is not produced up to 6 months after the certificate was required or a valid Display Energy Certificate is not displayed.
Applied link can offer assistance in the certification of your building or system with the following,
- EPC (Energy Performance Certificate)
- DEC (Display Energy Certificate)
- TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections
The biggest opportunity to address the environmental impact lies in better management and improvement of the existing building stock. BREEAM In-Use has been developed to recognise and encourage better building management and targeted investment in existing building stock, the scheme is designed to help building managers reduce the running costs and improve the environmental performance of existing buildings. The environmental performance of an organisation's built assets is a key factor in its sustainability credentials and carbon footprint. Operating a building also represents a major cost - with soaring energy prices and an uncertain economic outlook, cutting energy, water, waste and other such costs can be a relatively easy way of improving profitability,
BREEAM in-use consists of a standard, easy-to-understand assessment methodology and an independent certification process that provides a clear and credible route map to saving money & improving sustainability. Let Applied link assist you in this process.
