Our Services

G2A Energy

Our primary aim is to measure and assess the efficiency of buildings

Energy Performance Certificates

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EU Directive & UK Law) is now firmly embedded into the property transaction process, triggering the legal need to produce EPC’s for those buildings being offered for sale or rental. This applies to both residential dwellings and commercial non dwellings.

From April 2018 the EPC will form the basis on which continuing to offer all buildings for rental becomes subject to the minimum energy efficiency standard provision under the Energy Act 2011. To put it plainly, any building with an EPC rating of less than an ‘E’ band will be banned from being rented.

G2A Health & Safety

Our primary aim is to assess health and safety requirements of buildings

Fire Risk Assessments

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales and Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 came into force in October 2006. This places responsibility for enforcing general fire precautions on the local Fire Authorities. The Order introduces a risk- based approach to fire safety and requires the Responsible Person to carry out a risk assessment to demonstrate that the fire safety precautions are adequate. Where the responsible person does not have sufficient training or knowledge they must appoint competent person to assist in undertaking the assessment.

How we can help

Due to the often confusing amount of current legislation, building regulations and guide lines for fire safety why not let our competent and experienced assessors help with your fire safety requirements. Our services include:

  • Review your current policy’s and procedures and advise on any areas that may benefit from additional compliance in line with current legislation and guidance.
  • Review your property’s active and passive fire protection including fire fighting equipment, fire detection, emergency routes, maintenance and other areas that will allow you to identify the level of risk to the relevant persons.
  • Record all general and significant findings with recommendations set out in a workable document that can be used in conjunction with your staff fire safety training.

As part of your requirements we will provide on going support to help keep your business legal and protect the safety and well being of your staff.

Asbestos Management and Refurbishment/​Demolition Surveys

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR) require employers to prevent the exposure of their employees to asbestos. Where this is not practical they must reduce the exposure to the lowest possible level. In addition CAR includes a regulation that places a duty on those that have repair and maintenance responsibilities for premises due to a contract or tenancy, to manage the risk from asbestos in those premises. Where there is no contract or tenancy the person in control will be the duty holder.

How we can help

We provide UKAS accredited Asbestos Management and Refurbishment surveys on commercial properties. All surveys are carried out in accordance with HSE HSG264 and HSG227 which are the approved and recognised format for asbestos surveys in the UK.

Our Management surveys include a room by room non destructive inspection of the building materials, sampling and analysis of suspected ACM’s, production of register and management plan (draught copy), assessment of the risk of ACM and derived scores for material risk and proposals for management action. We can also provide update surveys or complete periodic re-inspection surveys where required.

Workplace Risk Assessments

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSW Act) requires an employer to conduct their work in such a way that their employees will not be exposed to health and safety risks, and to provide information to other people about their workplace which might affect their health and safety. Section 3 of the HSW Act places general duties on employers and the self-employed in respect of people other than their employees. Section 4 contains general duties for anyone who has control over a workplace.

How we can help

We provide a range of tailor made assessment surveys for commercial property’s from individual tenanted units to complex multi occupied buildings. We can action a review of your present Health and Safety policy, procedures and documentation along with a full property survey that will assess the risk to employees, visitors and contractors. A workable document is produced with risk based control plan, observations, guidance notes and recommendations. Guidance and recommendations take into account the many Health and Safety Statutory Legislations, Codes of Practice and Industry Standards.

Legionella Risk Assessment

Our professional Legionella Risk Assessments are fully compliant with the latest British Standards dealing with Legionella risk assessments HSE Approved code of practice L8.

How we can help

The Approved Code of Practice states that the person on whom the statutory duty falls is required to have access to competent help in assessing the risks. This may involve the engagement of an external water hygiene specialist such as g2a to prepare full and adequate risk assessment.

The Risk Assessment involves our assessor completing a comprehensive assessment of the buildings water system and assessing the risk for its potential to be colonised by Legionella bacteria. We work with minimal disturbance to your business operation, there is no disruption to the water supply.

Following the on-site assessment, we will compile a comprehensive report detailing the level of potential Legionella risk to your employees and public and suggest the most appropriate remedial actions. If the Legionella risk is considered to be high an ongoing water hygiene management program may be necessary.

Access Audit

The Equality Act of 2010 enforces the requirements of the previous Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). A report is the easiest and most comprehensive way of making sure the needs of your disabled employees and visitors are meet. The audit will provide you with a simplified report showing you the journey a disabled person has to take through your property. This takes into account many areas including access, egress, parking, corridors, doors, toilets, lifts, stairs and many more.
