We can provide your provisional & final BER’s as well as Air permeability certificates.

A provisional BER is geared towards ensuring that a development reaches the maximum energy rating possible for the minimum level of investment. The report outlines areas of energy efficiency that can be improved and renewable technologies that suit your particular development. The focus is on attaining the best BER Certificate possible for either domestic or commercial buildings. With buyers becoming increasingly more aware of the energy costs of running a building a positive BER will make your development more appealing.
