As a business, reducing overheads and energy costs should be of paramount concern, especially for those whose offices or outlet operates expensive air conditioning systems.
Green Zone Surveys, one of the UK’s leading independent building compliance firms, offer energy audits for their clients, and advise on behaviour change and realistic investments in energy efficiency technologies. Saving money on utilities can not only be a great remuneration exercise for a business, but can also make you more in line with government regulations and environmental policy.
If you do operate air con in your building, you are required to undertake a TM44 inspection (ACI), to ensure that your carbon emissions are minimal and not dangerously impacting on the surrounding airspace. Green Zone Surveys are accredited and qualified to Level 4 in TM44, and supply the service to major retail outlets across the UK.
On completion of inspection, Green Zone can supply you with a custom F-Gas Register and asset label any relevant equipment to the required standard. The EU’s F-Gas Regulation No 842/0006 affects all users of air conditioning equipment, so it is required by law.
Other services from Green Zone include Kitchen Extract Cleaning, an important element of compliance for the food industry, and any building operation commercial kitchen or food preparation areas. The service complies with DW144 and DW172 regulations, and can include the installation of a ductwork supply and extraction systems if required.
Recent research into Legionnaire’s Disease has also led to the introduction of legislation, meaning many businesses are required to ensure the safety of their water and air quality. Green Zone offer pre-treatment bacterial and fungal surveys to establish an effective cleaning program of ductwork using a variety of techniques.
