Hardies introduces dedicated energy service

Hefin O’Hare and Kevin Webster

HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants has launched a dedicated energy service in anticipation of tighter regulations in relation to the energy performance of properties.

Headed up by Kevin Webster, in charge of domestic energy services operating out of Hardies’ Stirling office and Hefin O’Hare, in charge of commercial energy services operating from the Dunfermline office, the new department offers a range of services to clients including Section 63 assessments, DECs, energy appraisals, energy audits, notional EPCs for new developments, domestic EPCs and green deal assessments.

Kevin Webster said, “In the past, it was recognised that the production of an Energy Performance Certificate was predominantly a necessity when selling or leasing a property, with little or no specific interest of what the property rating was. However, the world is now much more conscious of the environmental and economic impact that a property with a lower rating can have.

“Hardies’ energy service can provide a complete energy appraisal of a property, providing not only bespoke energy improvement measures and an action plan that will increase its energy performance, but also reduce the running costs of the premises.”
