Be compliant, energy efficient and boost indoor environmental quality

There are a number of regulatory requirements EFT helps its clients adhere to. Beyond compliance, we can introduce simple changes that can significantly enhance how your space performs.

As well as improving energy efficiency, we will uncover often unseen environmental factors, which contribute to ‘Sick Building Syndrome’. Heat, light and ventilation have a major influence on occupants’ health and comfort, reducing productivity and impairing learning in schools and colleges.

Our team will transform your indoor environmental quality, with smart, cost-effective measures. In Wales, it will also mean that you keep in step with the Welsh Government’s Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. By working with EFT, you can be confident that your environment will save on cost and support productivity and wellbeing.

Energy Efficiency & Quality

With an ever-increasing demand for power, it is important for organisations to understand the performance of its building’s energy. This is critical to ensure an effective and secure source of energy to maintain operational continuity.

Within the UK, standards for this are being continually developed and implemented by Government initiatives such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and Part L of the Building Regulations, to name but a few.

Metering and monitoring energy consumption gives owners and operators valuable information about how their buildings are performing. This can deliver substantial, almost instant improvements. Energy metering and monitoring systems can help with identifying cost cutting opportunities by detecting inefficiencies, benchmarking building performance, improving load planning and energy usage, and managing demand to ensure there is minimum exposure to volatility. An effective metering and monitoring system is one with the capacity to get end users, facility managers and owners involved in energy-efficiency measures. The ability to identify and measure energy use is often sufficient to bring about energy-saving changes in practices and behaviours.

EFT offer a number of services in this arena, including:

  • Energy Efficiency Audits
  • Power Quality Survey
  • Metering, Monitoring, & Reporting Systems
  • Power Security
  • Ongoing reviews of building performance and compliance.

Wellbeing Performance

At EFT, we believe that improving the wellbeing performance of an environment through design of building services is vital in the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of an organisation.

This is applicable to not just new builds and refurbishments, but also applies to established environments, which need to be continually monitored, reviewed and developed.

When we consider that approximately 75-85% of the current UK building stock will still be in use by 20501, it is imperative to ensure the building’s environment is optimised to ensure a zero compromised quality standard for its occupants, especially when considering that Europeans spend at least 90% of their time indoors.

There are a number of environmental factors which have a major influence on the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor environmental quality has been linked to phenomenon such as ‘The Sick Building Syndrome’, which reduces productivity and morale in workplaces and impaired learning in educational establishments.

The Welsh Government has implemented the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, which emphasises the importance of wellbeing at the heart of decision making. Although this Act is only enforced to public bodies within Wales, it may be referenced by any sector/size organisation that wishes to adopt and implement it as a means to improve health, productivity and wellbeing.

EFT offer a number of services in this specialist sector, including:

  • Wellbeing Audits
  • Legislative Reviews in line with acts of governance, regulations and public health guidance documents
  • Design solutions
  • Measuring, Monitoring & Reporting Systems
  • Ongoing reviews of building performance and compliance.
