Elmhurst Energy launches Approved Certifier of Design scheme
Elmhurst Energy has launched its Approved Certifier of Design (Section 6-Domestic) accreditation scheme, which is fully approved by the Building Standards Division of the Scottish Government.
With the launch of this new scheme members can now lodge new-build Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and also create Certificates of Design under one scheme. The Elmhurst scheme is also open to existing Certifiers wishing to simplify things by working with just one approved body.
“We are delighted to launch this new scheme which has been regularly requested by our members and the wider industry. Our hope is that this scheme adds further value to the services of new build assessors, alongside their SAP Calculations and EPCs,” explains Martyn Reed, Managing Director of Elmhurst Energy
The services offered by an Elmhurst Approved Certifier of Design are sought after by builders and developers wishing to speed up the warrant application process, and enjoy a discount on the cost of that warrant. Using an ACD with proven competence can also reduce the time and cost associated with defective work, or over specifying.
Approved Certifiers of Design have demonstrated their ability to deliver high standards of work through their comprehensive knowledge of house design and building standards.
The desk based training and assessment process is recommended for all new-build energy assessors and others involved in the building design process.
A three-day training course is available for all Elmhurst Accredited On Construction Domestic Energy Assessors (OCDEA), and will provide delegates with extensive knowledge of the Approved Certifier of Design Scheme, Section 6, and SAP energy calculations. Upon successful completion of the course and exams, delegates will be eligible to join Elmhurst's Approved Certifier of Design Scheme.
