EPCs - Stock Condition - Wates Living Space

By admin

Project overview

Pennington Choices were instructed by Wates Living Space to provide energy performance certificates (EPCs), stock condition and technical surveys for approximately 2,500 properties owned by Orbit Housing Association in central England.
In addition we were asked to obtain planning consent for about 1,000 eternal wall insulations (EWIs).

Our challenge

Orbit Housing Association has an extensive portfolio of properties in a number of geographical locations. This meant the project required effective management to ensure the delivery of a high quality service, while ensuring the project was delivered on time.

What we did

We set up a national network of surveyors capable of providing not only the EPC data but also stock condition information. A system was put in place to manage the high quantity of data. Data analysis software was produced to extract the required information from the XML documents, enabling the client to simultaneously input the required data direct into their asset management system.

Our achievements

For Wates Living Space we achieved the following:

  • Enabled them to offer a product that would blend directly into Orbit’s asset management software
  • Assisted in obtaining high quantities of data in a limited time frame
  • Produced large quantities of reports to ensure that Orbit met their ECO obligations
  • Offered a full service package, reducing lead-in times and streamlined their current process.

"The staff at Pennington Choices are friendly and approachable. They are easy to get hold of and always call you back if you leave a message. They respond to general queries quickly with an agreeable outcome.
