A Non Domestic BER is an indication of the energy performance of a building. It is an asset rating of a commercial unit. It covers energy use for space heating and cooling, water heating, ventilation and lighting calculated on the basis of standard occupancy. The certificate has a scale of A – G.
The Non Domestic Energy Assessment Procedure (NEAP) is the methodology used to generate the Building Energy Rating (BER) and advisory report for new and existing non- domestic buildings. NEAP calculates the energy consumption and CO2 emissions associated with a standardised use of a building. The energy consumption is expressed in terms of kilowatt hours per square meter floor area per year (kWh/m2/yr) and the CO2 emissions expressed in terms of kilograms of CO2 per square meter floor area per year (kg CO2/m2/yr).
The assessment takes into account the following;
- The geometry and age of the building
- Type and thickness of insulation materials in the building fabric
- Activity and particulars of each zone
- The heating systems in place
- Access to daylight – solar gain & shading
- The ventilation system used
- The type of lighting and controls
- Any renewable technologies in use
Our team have many years experience in both the energy and building sector and offer unrivalled expertise in this area.
All non domestic quotes are given on a case by case basis and are calculated based on floor area and the complexity of the building. Non Domestic BER prices start at €275 incl vat.
