Raise your hand if you recently selected a consultant, purely on price?
When we ask, “Other than price, were there other factors that guided your decision?”, we often hear “No, the other company gave a competitive price for the same thing”. […]
A “Verification Method” JV3 assessment compares the proposed building’s Annual Energy Consumption, against a simulated Reference Building. This Reference Building complies with all the elemental NCC Section J Deemed-To-Satisfy (DTS) requirements (e.g. insulation and glazing). According to JV3 modelling conditions, […]Read More
Energy efficiency assessments are quite complex. The cost of finding a Building Solution is effected by many different variables. It’s a bit like getting a quote for a kitchen or bathroom – since designs and materials differ, the cost changes […]Read More
This article is the second of a three-part series discussing elemental trading in a Verification Method JV3 thermal simulation. The series discusses the effect solar absorptance, insulation and thermal mass have on the performance of the building envelope. In the […]Read More
