We’re delighted to have ended October by completing a job meaning we have now done one thousandth non-domestic EPCs. Without rifling through all our previous reports, I imagine the smallest building assessed for an EPC was a one room office of about 25 sq m, somewhere in Dorset, though I forget the town. No question that the biggest one, however, was a supermarket distribution centre in the Midlands. Surveying it took the pair of us most of the day and Simon was sat at his computer for rather a long time afterwards!
Most of our work has been in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, with EPCs in Exeter, Plymouth and Taunton probably our most visited locations. Naturally, we’ve been further afield in the region; down to Penzance, up to Lynton and across to Frome. Furthest north though has to be Leeds, at the moment, as one of our regular clients tells us we may need to head to Scotland next year! We’ve had plenty of trips to London and Simon has recently been heading a long way east to Brighton, Margate and the Isle of Sheppey.
Shops, offices and industrial units make up the majority of the EPCs we’ve undertaken but we’ve also been to numerous schools, care homes, farms, supermarkets and a handful of abattoirs. We’re looking forward to the next 1,000 and the only decision left now is where to go for our celebratory lunch!
