OCSC were appointed by Point Village Management Limited to carry out all Building Energy Rating Certification for the properties within the Point Village Development.
Through our in-house dynamic modeling software package IESVE, OCSC proposed a cost effective solution for the client that allowed the whole building to be constructed in a single energy model and certificates produced as and when required through the sale or letting process.
It was estimated that this approach to BER certification saved the Client 35% in fees and reduced the timescale of certificate production by 45%.
OCSC utilized the following components of IESVE to complete the BER’s within the Point Village:
• Model IT to construct the development within a 3D environment
• VE compliance was used to interact with the SBEM compliant software in order to carry out the certification
• Apache Sim was used to validate the size and annual operation of the CHP within the Gibson Hotel.
