From the 1st October 2008 all commercial buildings over 50m² now require a
Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate
(NDEPC). The purpose of the NDEPC is to assess a buildings’
CO2 emissions in line with the requirements of Building Regulations (Part L).

Buildings account for almost half of the energy consumption and carbon emissions in the UK. The heating and hot water used in your
building can amount to half of all your energy costs.

Sitemaster Building software is now being used extensively to produce fast and accurate floor plans to
assist Commercial Energy Assessment companies in the production of the new certificates.

    I wonder how much time this would save by using that floor plan software. Often I find that while my guys are working in buildings – where staff are still working – it can be difficult and frustrating to complete a job but I guess if this speeds the process up it could save on a few return visits to site??? Is there any limit to the size of jobs you could take on by using this method?

    I’d like to know more about how the software is used in relation to the Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (NDEPC).

    Hi David

    Thanks for your comments, there is really NO limit to the size of buildings and floor plans that can be drawn with the Sitemaster Software, in fact it has now been used on more than 100million square meters of Building Surveys in Europe alone over the last few years.

    It is also being used extensively for NDEPC’s as one of the first things a Commercial Energy Surveyor requires is accurate floor plans, but that is not all, the software is also very good at collecting data whilst on site carrying out the survey, another reason it is proving sop popular with Commercial Energy surveyors.

    Soon to be released though is a version of Sitemaster that will allow all the data input and drawings to be impiorted directly into the SBEM software, thus saving countless hours on duplication of work, this shoud be released very soon and will save CEA’s many many hours of work.

    I recently employed Mobile CAD Surveying to carry out a bulding survey for me on a large Victorian house, they gave me a quote before taking on the job and a quotation based on the square metreage I gave them.

    The job was carried out on site in only one day, about a third of the time that the other surveying companies I went to needed, it meant I had a set of floor plan CAD drawings in 48 hours, about a quarter of the time everyone else needed. This enabled us to get on with the project much faster which was important. We have since found out that the floor plans given to us were in fact also much more accurate than we have ever had in the past and delivered much faster.

    On our next project, there is only one company we will be going to. Thanks to Mobile CAD Surveying Ltd, we have now seen how things can be done and would have no hesitation in using them in the future.

    Well done!
