The history of Barry in Wales, which was developed as a coal port in the 1880s. The Barry Railway brought coal down from South Wales to the new docks, whose trade grew from one million tons in the first year, to over nine million tons by 1903. The port was crowded with ships and had flourishing ship repair yards, cold stores, flour mills and an ice factory. By 1913, Barry was the largest coal exporting port in the world. Behind the docks rose the terraced houses of Barry which, with Cadoxton, soon formed a sizeable town.
We have a local experienced commercial EPC surveyor who is familiar with the area and heritage of Barry, with over 10 years experience in energy efficiency.
Virtually all domestic and non-domestic buildings sold, rented out or constructed since 2008 must have an EPC. An EPC may also be required when a property is altered in particular ways.
By law every Commercial property for sale or rent must have an Energy Performance Certificate. This is not just for nondomestic properties in Barry, but the rest of Wales and England. The certificate is issued by an approved Commercial Energy Assessor registered with Landmark, an organisation which maintains the register on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government.
Business owners in Barry purchasing a commercial property or renting a non-domestic building, will find the benefits of an Energy Performance Certificate very straightforward. The nearer the property is to 0 or A, the more efficient the property is. Acting on the recommendations in the report will help reduce the buildings Co2 emissions and increase its efficiency.
