79 keeps you ahead of the regs

If you’re thinking of updating your premises, new building regulations will affect you. The Part L building regulations require a higher standard of energy efficiency for new buildings and work on existing buildings.

The new regulations, which come into force this October, require companies to use more efficient lighting products than specified by the current regulations. New regulations are always a headache, but the 79 Group can help. Our engineering division, 79 M&E, employs qualified Part L supervisors who are authorised to sign off designs and installations under the new regulations.

And there’s a financial incentive to invest in energy efficiency: businesses who spend money now on cutting their carbon emissions will benefit from tax relief under a new government scheme. The Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme (ECA) allows businesses who invest in energy-saving equipment to claim a 100% first-year capital allowance. Interest-free loans are also available for companies that fit certain criteria.

If you’d like to talk to us about how we can keep you on the right side of the new regulations, contact 79 M&E on 01242 672781.
