hey was wondering if anyone knew of n e one that does the BER assessing???
i was looking at http://www.ecoevolution.ie
who do it and they seem pretty good but was wondering what people thought??
they also do renewable energy so i mite also look into that when i build my house but rite now they seem the best choice for BER assessment because i want to get one done!!
what do people think???
firstly i would only advise you to get a BER assessment done by someone who is independent of any retail company. IF they arent then your at risk of having engineering solutions forced on you as in "youd get a rating of a3 if you use our xyz product"...
Secondly i would advise you to find out what construction knowledge your BER assessor has. The most important part of an assessment on a new build is the advisory report. Someone with proper construction knowledge would know what materials work together and what do not. Many ber assessor are not from a construction background. Preferably your BER assessor should be an architectural technician, even more preferrably he/she should be part of the design team that designs your build.
thirdly, check here for a list of registered BER assessors in your area. http://188.8.131.52/SearchAssessors.aspx
