  1. Why Choose Us

    For over 10 years, Energist’s team of in-house specialists have been working by your side to reduce your workload and risk, making planning approval, compliance and Building Control sign off as straight forward as possible.

    Here's our promise to you:

    With a team of technical specialists working under one roof, we provide services from planning and design all the way through to construction and completion in a joined-up approach. Our efficient internal communication and liaison helps to simplify the process, meaning you will only need one point of contact with us.

    Our team of technical specialists are at the end of a phone to provide a free consultation call and support or advice whenever you need it. 

    We understand your pressures and timescales, which is why we promise to take the workload off your desk and liaise with authorities on your behalf as a natural extension to your team.

    We will work to your deadlines and are able to provide fast-tracked reports for many of our services upon request, to help avoid any delays to your Building Control sign off. We deliver 100% of EPCs the same day they are requested and promise that if you don’t receive your certificate the same day, we’ll refund you the full cost of the SAP/EPC*.

  2. Sarah and the Team

    “We exist solely for Britain’s architects, builders and contractors so that they can design and build their buildings of choice, without the burden of complicated regulations. We’re right by their side. Challenging the unnecessary. Leading the way”

    "I love buildings." 

    My family has a long history of working in and improving the construction industry, so I believe making the world better starts from the ground up. From the spaces we use for homes to those we use for work and fun. 

    But instead of drawing plans and laying bricks, I wanted to make sure these spaces can be enjoyed by future generations as much as they are now.

    I founded Energist to provide energy efficiency and sustainability services to help you make better, greener buildings. Sustainability is all about looking forward, so I’m always hungry for new ways of making your world better. Whether it’s keeping us one step ahead of regulations, teaming up with local charities or expanding what we do and how we do it.

    Together, we can keep Britain’s buildings brilliant.

  4. Chocolate

    At Energist we love chocolate and we know you do too.

    Given our perfectionism with energy assessments and finding the right solutions, we couldn’t simply choose any chocolate bar for our own. After a thorough research and tasting process, we sourced our own bars of silky smooth milk chocolate, rich dark chocolate and creamy white chocolate, just for you. 

    Why not try a bar for yourself? Just complete the form below and you'll receive a bar in the post. Don't forget to let us know what you think using the hashtag #EnergistChocolate

    *Upon submitting your chocolate request, you will receive a follow up from a member of our sales team.

  5. Charity

    Charity is a huge part of the culture at Energist and with a dedicated team organising monthly events, we're always looking forward to our next fundraiser.

    This April Sam Higgs, from our National Business Development team, will be running the London Marathon for the Dementia Revolution - the joint force of Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK.

    A message from Sam:

    "Dementia is becoming ever more prevalent in our day to day lives and it’s rare to come across a family that has not felt the effect of this deadly and devastating condition. On 28th April 2019 I will be 'running' the London Marathon for Dementia Revolution... 

    I am certainly not a natural runner, however with plenty of training I am on the verge of completing my first 20-mile run. The final 6 miles will be a mental challenge that I WILL overcome. 

    Thank you all for your support!"

    Throughout the month, the Charity Team are organising a number of events to help fundraise towards Sam's target, including bake sales, a BBQ and dress-down Fridays. If you would like to support Sam and donate, you can do so via his Virgin Money Giving page.
