  • The building's Sound Tests passed.
  • The SAP Calculations failed to meet Part L, however due to the mill being a listed building, they do not have to pass Building Regulation standards.  It was deemed that the required upgrades would drastically alter the character of the building.  The results are therefore for indicative purposes only.
  • A Water Efficiency Rate of 108.24 Litres per person per day was achieved, the Target being ≤ 110L.
  • Our Combined Compliance Package offers excellent value.
