Prices

 

I work as a self-employed sole trader, operating from my home office, with low financial overheads. I do not personally sub-contract work out but do work as a sub-contractor to other home energy rating businesses. My aim is to provide a timely, quality service at a competitive price.

 

SAP calculations using NHER Plan Assessor software are broken down into 4 no. stages:-

 

1) Design Draft - working draft version calculation(s), to include DER / TER comparison for new build dwellings, and other checks required to demonstrate building regulations compliance

 

2) Design Final - final design version calculation for initial submission to Building Control Body. Outputs include a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA)

 

3) As-Built Draft - working draft version calculation(s) based upon the dwelling as-built

 

4) As-Built Final - final calculation version upon which the On Construction Energy Performance Certificate (OCEPC) and other documentation required by the Building Control Body is produced
