Approved Certifier of Design Scheme
Elmhurst Energy has soft launched its Approved Certifier of Design (Section 6-Domestic) accreditation scheme, which is conditionally approved by the Building Standards Division of the Scottish Government.
Elmhurst are making the final arrangements necessary with the Scottish Government in order to formally launch the Scheme and will announce training dates in due course.
If you are interested in receiving further information about Elmhurst's newest scheme or any upcoming Approved Certifier of Design training courses, please register your interest below.
Why become an Approved Certifier of Design?
As a registered Approved Certifier of Design (domestic) you can demonstrate a higher standard of work through comprehensive knowledge of building design and standards. The work is desk based and is recommended for new build energy assessors and those involved in the building design process. Approved Certifiers of Design can reduce the time and cost associated with defective work, and from this can gain a distinct advantage over less qualified competitors.
These certification services are sought after by building owners in Scotland, as a Section 6 Certificate of Design (domestic) issued by a qualified professional can speed up the warrant application process and can also result in a discount on the entire cost of the warrant fee.
Moreover, New Build Energy Assessors who qualify as Approved Certifiers of Design will have the authorisation to produce EPCs alongside these certificates, and will benefit from the increased level of service that they can offer to architects, self-builds and housing developers in Scotland.
