Technical Monitoring & Chartered surveyors Reports
We undertake Technical Monitoring inspections for the full range of measures specified in the OFGEM Suppliers Guide and work with a number of clients to develop quality standards and technical specifications to delivery energy efficiency measures. We work with a number of leading installers undertaking technical surveys to establish what energy efficiency measures may be suitable for installation in domestic dwellings.
Technical Monitoring inspections have been the core activity of the company since its inception in 2002.
These on-site inspections are mandated by Ofgem under their guidance for the ECO, to be completed by the obligated energy suppliers, using a third party independent organisation.
The technical monitoring inspections cover the compliance, quality and safety aspects of the energy efficiency measure. These are carried out either pre, mid or post installation, dependent on the measuring type.
Paul Burrows act as the Chartered Surveyor within ECO for all aspects including primary recommended measure sign offs for ETTC, HTTC, loft insulation and external wall/internal wall insulation.
Under the ECO Guidance documentation a recommended Measure Report by a Chartered Surveyor is required for either a hard-to-treat or easy-to-treat cavity (HTTC or ETTC) together with many other primary measures such as loft insulation.
A measure may be recommended in a report by a Chartered Surveyor where the report is based on an assessment of a domestic premise performed for improving the energy efficiency of the premises. The assessment must be an EPC and may be carried out by a Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), provided that person is of appropriate skill and qualification. The Chartered Surveyor must be satisfied that the report is accurate by ensuring that the EPC has recommended the measure and lodged with an accredited body.
The process ensures that the report by the Chartered Surveyor, identifies the premises to which the report relates, specifies in detail the energy efficiency measure(s) recommended for the premises and the EPC contains all relevant information that the DEA has used to inform their recommendation together with a summary of the assessment of the premises.
Although single reports may be used for more than one premises as long as the report is for premises that are largely identical and it is not necessary therefore to carry out a separate EPC.
An appropriately qualified Chartered Surveyor, must be either a Chartered Building Surveyor, a Chartered Valuer or a Chartered RICS ECO Assessor in order to be able to provide the necessary RICS sign offs.
