“What we cover in our Desktop Audit”

Our expert team review your technical information.

All of our certificate services include full desk-top auditing of the technical details of a project. This is an inclusive service representing excellent value for money. A full report is provided following expert analysis of the plans and technical details; this report highlights the shortcomings of the design (if any) and gives an early warning of potential problems.

Early identification of problems saves £££££s. As an example of this recently, a client had omitted to provide SAP ratings for his self-build, which had the potential for expensive alterations being needed later on in the project. SAP ratings are important for the Energy Performance of the new dwelling, it is mandatory now for a new dwelling to achieve a certain minimum standard, failure to achieve this results in an attempt to retro-fit the house in order to comply.

The client in question was alerted to this failing in his design and was able to inexpensively add in extra insulation early on in the build and thus avoided a catastrophic expense at the end. The desk-top audit (DTA) is an essential part of our certification process and is included free of charge.

    I found the staff at ABC+ to be courteous throughout my engagement with them. They took on board my disability and were flexible in their approach in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome. I cannot fault their professionalism … More and their respond time was excellent.

    I cannot recommend ABC+ more highly. In a very grey world of deeming a converted victorian flat a new build property they have taken their time and patience to help me understand everything and exceeded my expectations on … More everything they said start to finish. Every single member of staff I spoke to was absolutely excellent. In the process of finding a product I spoke to at least 3 other competitors and was let down time and again after a lengthily process with overly complicated procedures. Lucky enough for me I was referred to ABC+ and not only will I be referring them to other developers, I will be using them shortly again too.
