East London has plenty of commercial properties, many smaller retail units. This particular shop is a grocery store on Leytonstone High Road.
The store is really quite small, and only 2 zones were required to input the property into the software. This meant we could keep the cost low and the customer satisfied! The visit to Leyton took only around 15 minutes to take the necessary measurements and photographic evidence. The report was produce the next day to ensure a speedy turnaround.
Unfortunately the energy rating on these kinds of stores is usually very low. They are situated in older properties and usually have no fixed heating or conditioning system. The old style T8 lighting doesn’t help either, as this will drag the rating down further.
G rated properties like this will have to be upgraded in the near future as new regulations come into force with regards the energy rating of rented properties. Properties like this one in Leyton are going to find it difficult to achieve a better rating, and as such we offer a bespoke service providing recommendations and pathways to get to the minimum rating requirements.
We have undertaken many EPCs in this area and are well versed with the locale. If you would like a quote for your premises, just drop us a line and we will be happy to help.
