Energy Audit is an inspection survey that analyses energy consumptions in various parts of a building, industrial or commercial facility with the aim of energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s). In commercial and industrial facilities, an energy audit is the first step in identifying opportunities to reduce energy expense and carbon footprints.
Different Levels of energy audit can be carried out depending on the client or property requirement/ situation:
Level 1 though basic, covers all systems specified in RERA’s Building Audit Checklist.
Level 2 would be appropriate for properties facing specific problems such as structural, MEP, HVAC etc. And finally
Level 3, our most comprehensive report, would benefit investors and lending institutions committing huge funds to property.
Our consultants will spend time assessing your needs and advice you on the package that will best match your requirements.
