Key Insulation Survey Services offered:

Our Desktop CSR Service: ESTER

ESTERWe offer a desktop service that is fully compliant with OFGEM guidance. You can follow this link to the new guidance which explains the details of what we need to do to issue the CSR.

To use our desktop service we have created standard templates that you can populate via our ESTER interface, remotely. This includes data such as property type, address, postcode and measure to be adopted. The desktop route means that you will have to do more work to provide the technical diligence, but this can be captured by your own staff whilst they are on site and may already exist via EPC’s/RDSAP etc. This is generally a very cost efficient route for many clients. 

On-site CSR: Alternatively we can collate this all for you using our own trained staff.

This service is managed using our purpose build database ESTER (Eco Surveyors Tool for Evaluating & Reporting), which has been created to manage the CSR process from start to finish at a price that is fair to all parties. We are happy to provide model reports from test data provided by you, call now on 0330 088 4155

PAS 2030:2017 – Pre Insulation Building Inspection (PIBI)

Pre Insulation Building InspectionMost volume External Wall Insulation (EWI) installers are PAS 2030 accredited.

A requirement of the PAS certification is that a Pre Insulation Building Inspection (PIBI) must be undertaken to determine that the house is suitable for the installation of EWI. This process starts with accurate condition and construction information which is used as the basis of the design by the system designer.

The PIBI requires a collaborative approach between the Chartered Building Surveyor, the System Designer and the installing contractor. At Diamond & Co we have tailored this process to be available through our existing web portal ESTER for each of the parties involved. Call now to discuss your requirements: 0330 088 4155.
