Successful delivery of ECO and Green Deal services

Monday 2nd November, 2015

As part of our sustainability service, we have provided advice and technical support to clients following the introduction of Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Green Deal. Since the introduction of these initiatives, we have provided the following services:

  • Identified properties that would qualify for ECO and relevant funding streams including calculation of estimated carbon savings and subsequent available funding.
  • Producing the compliance documentation to access funding:
    • RICS technical reports
    • Intrusive surveys to determine the construction including suitable cost effective solutions to improve the thermal efficiency and providing compliant u-value reports to support applications.
    • Condensation risk reports to ensure that the proposed design does not create interstitial condensation risk.
    • Provision of EPCs or FSAP calculations required to access the funding.
  • As an accredited Green Deal Assessment Organisation, we have also aided clients with Green Deal Advise Reports to access Green Deal Home Improvement Funds.

In total, we have completed in excess of 2,000 surveys on behalf of Keepmoat Regeneration over the last three years delivering ECO subsidised schemes on behalf of:

  • Derwentside Homes
  • Your Homes Newcastle
  • Thirteen Group
  • East Durham Homes
  • Places for People

In addition, we have delivered 400 surveys on behalf of Mears Group by offering technical support for their ECO schemes within the North East, Manchester and Scotland.

With the recent government announcements regarding Green Deal, Green Deal Home Improvement Funds and ECO targets, our services are becoming more important at the feasibility stage to ensure that the scheme is financially viable offering our clients a level of certainty regarding funding drawdowns.
