Green credentials are becoming increasingly important to businesses and this extends to their premises. New buildings are now including low energy lighting, low carbon air source heating and natural ventilation for passive cooling. Most buildings should have an Energy Performance Certificate which shows how efficient the building is. There are new rules governing the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards which come into force on 1st April 2018 which will mean that buildings with a low F & G rating will be unlettable. More information on this can be found in our latest newsletter.
