Non Domestic Energy Assessor Software
About NDEA Software
Most commercial buildings in the UK require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before marketed sale or let. In England, Wales and NI, only certified NDEAs can produce a legally valid non domestic EPC using the government approved relevant Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) software.
There are currently a large number of SBEM third party software providers available in the market. We encourage our energy assessors to look and sample a number of software providers to make an informed decision and choose the appropriate software package that best suits their individual needs.
Recommended Software Providers
Elmhurst recommends a number of high quality NDEA software providers in its 'preferred software providers' list. Options range from basic data entry software to 3D graphical interfaces. Please note, some software suppliers may charge for the use of their software in addition to the standard charges outlined in the Elmhurst price list.
If you wish to use an alternative to the Elmhurst preferred software, please contact the Administration Team on 01455 883 253.
Proof of Software Competency
It is a mandatory government requirement to provide Elmhurst with evidence of competency in the software of your choice, in order to produce EPCs. If you have trained with Elmhurst this automatically counts as 'providing proof of competency' for the use of iSBEM software. Should you wish to use another third party software provider to produce EPCs, you will need to provide proof of competency in that particular software.
NDEA Software and the Central Register
Once all the survey data from your non domestic building is uploaded to the NDEA software of your choice, Elmhurst ensures the data is uploaded to the Non Domestic Central Register – Landmark (EST in Scotland). This is a Government requirement for all energy assessor accreditation schemes, for more information about Landmark please click here or for Scotlands Register (EST) click here.
