Element Sustainability have been working with Caddick Construction on their latest scheme comprising four new industrial units at Mere Grange, St Helens. Our in-house Energy Assessor, Colin, has been liaising with the design and construction team from concept design. The calculation has been completed to ensure compliance with Building Regulations Part L2A 2013 and, as the development is to achieve a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating overall, the model guarantees the required BREEAM energy credits are achieved. The project has now reached completion and the As Built Stage Part L BRUKL Reports and EPCs have been prepared for practical completion.
“It was a great project to be involved with from the start, helping our customers achieve the compliance they need is very rewarding” explained Colin Sowerbutts, Energy Assessor.
We aim to provide a complete package of services for our clients. The compliance services provided for this development were as follows:
- SBEM calculations and Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) including revisions to ensure BREEAM targets are met;
- Commercial air permeability tests carried out by our air testing engineer; and,
- Daylight factor calculations have been completed and a report produced to confirm that the industrial units comply with the BREEAM Hea 01 daylighting criteria.
Element Sustainability look forward to certifying the current Caddick schemes we are involved with and assisting in any forthcoming developments, as we continue to build on this good working relationship.
