EPC Review and MEES Improvement Report
Discuss your project

Our client, a UK based REIT, asked us to provide potential options and indicative costings to get the EPC of their distribution center to a B rating to meet the Governments proposed MEES regulations for 2030 and reduce their companywide CO2 emissions as part of their ESG reporting program. 

After an on site survey by our team and engagement with the tenants and client, a clear picture emerged showing what issues the building currently had, along with the tenant’s operational needs. This influenced the nature of the advice being given to the landlord to improve the property, whilst retaining a valued long term tenant.  

SEA Consulting produced a EPC+ / MEES Improvement Report outlining several options available to improve thermal comfort within the warehouse, whilst simultaneously reducing emissions. Additionally the tenant was looking into potential requirements to electrify their delivery fleet, so options to help with this were included. Our MEP knowledge produced a solution for £1.8M lower than other projections supplied to the landlord.

Our report covered costings, necessary works, regulatory matters that would need to be addressed and the significant collaborative opportunities that were available for both client and tenant on their respective pathways to Net Zero. This information will be used to feed in to both parties ESG reporting obligations.
