Reducing energy bills and carbon footprints by testing domestic and commercial properties dwellings for air permeability levels that comply with Building Regulations.
The business was launched in 2013 by James Spooner, a building management graduate with 20 years’ experience in the construction industry. This includes expertise developed through his other Cheshire-based company, Nantwich Brickwork.
Throughout James’ career, he has been passionate about sustainable construction. The air pressure testing services provided by Greenovation have taken the concept of energy efficiency to its ultimate conclusion.
A range of support services is available to complement air pressure testing services. These include cavity wall inspection, endoscopic inspection and thermal imaging where the aim is to minimise energy bills for a wide range of clients.
We’re talking here about architects, developers, public authorities, building contractors and construction professionals, as well as individuals involved with self-build projects, building extensions and renovations.
Greenovation have completed air pressure testing across numerous new build housing sites for me for a regional residential builder across Shropshire, Staffordshire & Cheshire. Booking in is never a problem – usually with short notice and tight deadlines to achieve Part L building regulations for CML dates which Greenovation are always helpful to accommodate.
Crucially, iATS registration has enabled Greenovation to extend the scope of its work into both domestic and commercial construction. More specifically, it allows Greenovation to test any building up to 400 cubic metres in size (which complies with L2 requirements under UK Building Regulations).
Greenovation’s Level 1 iATS Accreditation is a measure of the company’s commitment to best professional practice; to keeping abreast of the latest air testing techniques; and its ongoing involvement with Continuous Professional Development (CPD) – and all the customer benefits this brings in maintaining professional standards.
As an iATS-registered consultant, James Spooner has demonstrated competency levels that meet the high standards set out under the scheme. For clients, this means that Greenovation has the professional and physical resources to measure and quantify the key elements of a building’s ‘air tightness’.
Equally important is the company’s capacity to handle the whole process from recommending what action needs to be taken to ensure properties comply with the relevant UK Building Regulations, right through to implementing any remedial work that may be needed.
Greenovation’s Managing Director, James Spooner, is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Building (MCIB). He achieved this prestigious professional recognition following a stringent appraisal of his building industry experience and expertise. James’s status as a ‘Chartered Builder’ will give clients additional confidence in his commitment to maintaining the highest standards of workmanship and professional accountability.
