About

We are a small business set up in 2007 following introduction of legislation for Energy Performance Certificates. We’ve been at the forefront in expanding our experience relating to all the legislation since then relating to energy efficiency in buildings. We’ve developed particular experience in renewable heat installations and unusual properties, often having to work in conjunction with our Accreditation Body for some of the more unusual ones.
