Office Fit Out

Office fit outs in London with guaranteed EPC results

We have an enormous scope of experience with office fit outs, its where we started in the commercial property business and it was a natural pairing to combine EPCs and office fit outs as we established ourselves as the natural EPC company of choice for commercial landlords in London.

The evolution of non-lodged EPCs

When we founded Haptic EPC we began to get the occasional surprising request - landlords approached us for EPCs on their commercial premises but requested that we didn't proceed to lodge the certificate with the government portal. We dutifully did so as there is no specific duty to lodge an EPC and it soon became clear that the property owners were comisiioning them as an advisory tool - a dress rehersal for what their building would hypothetically score. This naturally lent itself to the next obvious question from the landlord:

"What do we need to do to get a better EPC score?"

Our EPC-ready fit out partners

DSM (Dynamic Simulation Model) and refers to the detailed 3D building model which is created within specialist software that allows for a far higher degree of accuracy. It utilises 365 days-a-year real-world weather simulation specific to the building's location as well as gauging daylight penetration into the interior of the thermal envelope. It can also recreate the interplay between surrounding building structures and how their shade or reflection interact with the building being assessed. An example from one of our Level 5 case studies can be seen below:

Bolt-on service

Compared to a level 3 or 4 EPC the level of accuracy a Level 5 EPC provides means that for the majority of buildings a substantial uplift in EPC score will be seen. It is also entirely possible to have a level 3 or 4 assessment made using the DSM software as again the accuracy often leads to a better EPC result and many landlords seeking the highest possible rating for their asset elect to do so. As the commercial property market moves in an ever-greener direction and the commercial benefits become more tangible we are seeing more and more requests for this level of assessment.

how it works

From a landlord's perspective a level 5 EPC isn't enormously different from commissioning any of our other types of energy assessment but the following should be noted

  • The initial consultation & negotiation is likely to take longer.

  • Detailed graphical floorplans are critically important.

  • You should allow at least one whole day for the on-site survey.

  • The entire post-survey stage takes substantially longer due to the complexity of modelling buildings accurately. In our experience we would allow up to a calendar month, certainly several weeks, before results could be expected.

  • The cost of a level 5 EPC is reflected in the substantial team work-hours it accrues along with the increased cost of lodgement (over six times higher than a level 3 or 4 EPC).
