Onward Housing procured Michael Dyson Associates Ltd (MDA) through the Fusion21 framework to provide EPC’s to their housing stock which were due to expire.
The output of the project was the provision of the property address list with the 16-digit report reference number (RRN), along with XML files for each property surveyed. The energy data produced was then used to offer up options for energy efficiency improvements as well as to model different energy efficiency scenarios to ascertain how potential improvements would impact EPC ratings. The data captured was analysed to identify specific property archetypes, and wider estates which had the poorest energy efficiency ratings, so that Onward can target these properties for future energy efficiency improvement works to help meet future carbon reduction targets. MDA completed the surveys using the Elmhurst RdSAP Go app, enabling the surveys to be lodged through Elmhurst.
All EPC surveys were completed in line with the programme and agreed budget and successfully lodged with Elmhurst.
