Provide quality assured Overheating assessments

Join Elmhurst’s recognised Overheating competency scheme and start providing quality assured assessments for clients.

Membership of Elmhurst’s Overheating competency scheme will demonstrate a professional recognition of the quality of your practice and enable you to be featured on Elmhurst’s ‘Search for Assessor’ facility.

How to join the scheme

In order to join Elmhurst's Overheating Competency Scheme you must attend one of our Overheating training courses and complete a competency assessment. If you are already an Overheating risk assessor who has completed a training course (even with another provider), you can go right ahead and apply for membership! Upon application to the scheme all applicants will receive a competency assessment, once passed you will be registered on the scheme.

Why provide quality assured Overheating assessments?

As buildings become more insulated and airtight, overheating is becoming more of a problem in the UK, which is why from June 2022 it will become a legal requirement for developers to provide Building Control Bodies with evidence that shows they have mitigated the risk of overheating.

By joining Elmhurst’s competency scheme you are demonstrating specialist knowledge and proficiency in using dynamic simulation modelling to evaluate different strategies to reduce the risk of overheating.

Need to attend a training course?

Elmhurst provides online Overheating training courses through our trusted third party training providers, IES and DesignBuilder. These courses will provide you with the knowledge needed to confidently assess Overheating risk in buildings using DesignBuilder's TM52 and TM59 tools.

The course is currently being delivered online with plans to return to classroom based training in the future.
