CBEM-UK are certified to produce commercial (non-domestic) Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for any commercial building in the United Kingdom (except NI). This includes Level 3, 4 and 5 Buildings.
You will require a commercial EPC if you wish to (or are currently) lease your building. You will also require a commercial EPC if you wish to sell the building.
Lots of information, including rules on exemptions is available on the government website.
Areas we cover
We cover the following postcodes: NP, BS, CF.
Prices will vary on distance.
We may consider large/complex projects outside of our normal area.
For new builds/renovations where no site visit is required, we cover all of UK (except NI)
When a site visit is required, we will agree an appointment time where we will visit the building, take some photographs (lights, HVAC, hot water etc) and take some measurements. If you have existing floor plans, this is helpful, especially if the building is large / complex. The site visit takes approx. 45 mins depending on the size of the building.
Once the site visit is complete we will produce a draft EPC. We will email you the draft with our invoice when this is complete. We usually do this on the same day as the site visit.
When you have approved the draft and paid the invoice we will lodge the EPC and email you a copy of the live certificate. This marks the end of the process.
Pricing and Lead-Time
Prices start at £195 for a ground floor 'High Street' type retail/office unit.
Any company that says they provide Commercial EPCs for £99 is talking nonsense.
We will email you a draft certificate and invoice typically on the same day as the site visit.
We lodge all EPCs on the same day that we receive payment. You will be emailed a pdf copy of the live certificate and a link to the online certificate

Unfortunately we do not provide EPCs/SAP calculations for dwellings - i.e. any self contained residential unit that contains an entrance door, bed, kitchen and bathroom.
