The Environmental Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) contains a range of provisions aimed at improving energy performance of residential and non-residential buildings, both new and existing. This directive was adopted into Irish law as regulation in 2006 and came into effect in January 2007. All new and existing buildings for sale or lease on or after 1st January 2009 require a BER at the point of sale or lease.
Part L of the 2011 Building Regulations deals with the energy performance of the building and requires specific attention in order for new builds to pass.

The EPBD obliges specific forms of information and advice on energy performance to be made available to building purchasers, tenants and users. This information provides consumers with information regarding the energy performance of the building in question. This information can then be taken into consideration in any decisions on property transactions.

We will identify heat loss/air infiltration, energy overspend and inefficiencies within your building fabric and HVAC systems while recommending solutions and improvements that are site specific.
