Does Certification differ for Domestic and Non Domestic Buildings?..

Failure to secure  ...   BER Certificate is valid for 10 years from the date of issue.. If substantial changes are carried out to the property within this time frame then a new Certificate may be required.. Will renewable energies have an effect on a BER Certificate?.. Renewable technologies are taken into account by the Assessor.. Fahy Fitzpatrick will calculate the buildings current data.. We will then inform and advise you as to which renewable technologies will improve the current rating by the greatest degree.. The more eco-friendly systems installed in the building the greater the likelihood of it achieving a good rating.. What is the advantage of achieving an A-rated building?.. The cost of space heating, water heating and electricity would be greatly reduced in an A1 rated building.. The building's emissions would be almost zero.. The value of the building to prospective buyers would be considerably more, considering the fact that they would have a building which would have virtually no running costs.. Can someone who is not obliged to get an Energy Certificate still get one?.. Yes - Especially if you'd like to reduce the cost of running your property..

    Descriptive info: What is a Disability Access Certificate?.. A disability access certificate is issued by the building control section of the local authority.. It certifies that the proposed works have been assessed and that the proposed drawings, when built, will meet the requirements of Part M of the building control regulations.. An application for a disability access cert requires a consultant to undertake an appraisal of the proposed works and report on this appraisal.. An access appraisal is a review with the purpose of establishing the performance of a proposed environment.. This relates to the terms of access, egress, and ease of use by the widest possible range of users.. This varies from persons without disabilities, to those utilising wheelchairs, to have the freedom achieve movement throughout the development.. Where possible, the appraisal shall recommend layout amendments in an effort to improve accessibility.. The appraisal is the first part of the access improvement process and should be followed by the preparation of an access plan on completion of construction, leading to on-going management of the accessible environment.. The aim of the appraisal is to promote simple and logical movement in and around the site and as far as possible, disabled people using the site the same way as everyone else does.. The purpose of the appraisal is to assess the site with regard to accessibility and inclusion for all users, taking into consideration and embracing, the likely needs of potential users.. This includes people pushing buggies, users with reduced mobility, people with mental health issues, learning difficulties, sensory impairments and wheelchair users.. An audit/appraisal commences with the approach to the site, including signage and parking, and then continues on a sequential journey throughout the site.. Improving access creates benefits beyond legal obligations, it enhances the experience for everyone, increases visitor numbers, and increases the efficiency of resources and, in existing buildings as this is a live document evolving over time, forward planning through prioritisation of works..  ...   accessibility appraisals and accessibility audits for their residential, commercial, educational, retail and healthcare customers.. Previous to January 2010 County Council s required an accessibility appraisal as part of the planning permission application process.. An appraisal is specific to the planning drawings and does not relate to the building on completion of construction.. An accessibility audit is of an As-built nature and the layout of the building is accessed on site.. Fahy Fitzpatrick can offer a joined up service of the fire cert application (safe egress) and disability access certificate application (safe access) providing an economic design solution to our clients.. We do this by undertaking both designs and both applications drawings and documentation together.. However, it is important to note that the fire safety certificate application is a completely separate process to the Disability Access Certificate process, with separate departments of the local authorities accessing the applications.. Fahy Fitzpatrick's applications are undertaken in a similar manner to accessibility appraisals,.. with regard to legislation and codes of practice, and includes advice from the National Disability Authority (NDA).. Accessibility of the built environment in Ireland for people with disabilities is mainly controlled by Part M of the Building Regulations entitled Access for People with Disabilities".. While the legislation covers the minimum, there is a need for engineers who wish to embrace the concept of universal access to look beyond the regulations, whilst also ensuring that their clients do not incur significant additional costs.. As part of our service, Fahy Fitzpatrick also refer to best practice literature from throughout the industry both Irish and international such as:.. Buildings for Everyone: National Disability Authority (NDA) Best Practice.. BS 8300: 2001 and 2005 (Best Practice).. Centre for universal Design, North Carolina State University.. design.. ncsu.. edu/cud/.. Centre for Accessible Environments.. cae.. org.. uk/..
