Currently we are observing a demand for professionals energy audits among developers and managers of buildings. It results in such factors as i.a. more and more restrictive European Union regulations concerning the emission of carbon dioxide, changes in construction law, and increasing knowledge about benefits – also business ones – resulting from application of services from the area of balanced construction. After conducting the audit and taking indicated advice during the analysis into consideration, the operation costs of the building may be reduced – comments Regina Gul, Senior Project Manager in Project Management Department for JLL, LEED AP and BREEAM In-Use Auditor.
Energy audit concerns checking a technical condition of a building, conducting inspection of a structure, making analysis of a lease area, technical as well as common rooms. Moreover, it is focused on the introduction to documentation of a structure and bills for media. On the basis of conducted surveys, a detailed report is prepared, in which areas requiring enhancement are defined. The experts propose directions of changes and concrete solutions. The example of those actions connected with energy audit may be, for instance, analysis of worktime and building installations, the aim of which is optimal adjustment of their worktime to the time of a building usage.
Except for energy audits, JLL provides a full package of services related to LEED and BREEAM certification.
