Why is it important to bring in an Energy Consultant earlier in the building process?

Building a new property takes blood, sweat and tears. It can be easy to let important tasks fall by the wayside when you’ve got a to-do list as long as your arm.

But your energy testing? You don’t want to let that sink into the ether.

In an ideal world, your energy consultation and test will result in a big, glowing tick. Fantastic. Job done.

Let’s face it; life isn’t always as straightforward as that.

The earlier you can bring your Energy Consultant into your new build, the higher your chances of passing those crucial tests and gaining your certification.

In the past, we’ve been brought into builds that are already complete. It’s no exaggeration to say that this makes the testing process 100 times harder for the client to pass.

Because when the time, effort and finances have already been pumped into a finished build, making (sometimes large) changes is far from easy. In fact, it can throw everything into disarray.

Save yourself the added pressure by tackling your energy efficiency earlier in your building journey.

While you may think you’ve designed a property that is sustainable and energy-saving, errors can still be made. Is it a surprise, when you have to be so focused on the bigger picture?

We get it. You’ve got a job that needs to be done. You want to tackle that first before thinking about anything else.

But… ignore now, pay later. And no one wants that.

Here at Buildpass, we can come in and provide the fine attention to detail needed to spot potential problems before they turn into dilemmas. We will advise you on solutions and strategies that can be put in place to boost your ratings and test outcomes.

This is vital because your ratings should never be underestimated. Even if you escape a fail, do you want to put a property on the market with a low rating?

Avoid future struggles by putting in the time now.

Enough of the doom and gloom; here’s the exciting part.

An Energy Consultant provides an epic opportunity to make your property more profitable, more environmentally friendly and more appealing to your customers.

We see the things that others miss. We recommend options that you may never have thought of.

The earlier you welcome us into the build, the simpler and quicker those changes will be to implement.

It really is as simple as that.

Are you forging your way through a new build? Are you in the process of putting plans into action? Get in touch for a free consultation. We’d love to tell you more about what we do and how we can support your property.
