KJ Tait offers a market leading service for complying with the strengthening of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) for rented non-domestic properties in England to EPC level ‘B’ by 2030 through our EPC ‘B’ Pathway service. This service incorporates our M&E Design Engineers, Facilities Engineers and EPC Assessors to establish the technical pathway to achieving the EPC ‘B’ standard.
At KJ Tait, we have standardised our auditing approach so that all issues relevant to an EPC Assessment are captured on our site visit. These include:
We use IES VE to create a Dynamic Simulation Model to establish what the EPC rating is. Reviewing the information gathered from site, our M&E Engineers establish the technical and economic feasibility of HVAC replacement strategy that focuses on decarbonising the heating system taking into account the age of installations, riser/roof/plant room space and coil sizes/flow rates. The resultant recommendations are modelled within the EPC modelling to ensure that any replacement installation can meet the ‘B’ standard.
With the feasibility complete, our Facilities Engineers work with the building team to put forward a costed plan for the upgrades.
