From schools through to universities and lecture theatres through to student accommodation, ACI Reports has over 10 years’ experience working within educational environments. Our staff have advanced DBS certificates and know how to survey these buildings for energy compliance whilst they are occupied by students of all ages but without causing disruption to their education.

We have helped many schools, colleges and universities to ensure compliance

Managing Compliance in Schools, Colleges and Universities

Schools and universities are under constant pressure not only to reduce costs but to comply with environmental legislation. The latter is often driven by the students themselves who are increasingly aware of the damage caused by carbon emissions. Likewise, the importance of air quality to the learning environment should not be understated. 

ACI Reports take a consulting approach to all aspects of work and will advise on the most appropriate way for schools and universities to stay compliant and save on costs. As an organisation, we are totally independent which means that we are not tied to any air conditioning company and act purely in the best interests of the education institute with whom we are working.  

Since TM44s were brought into UK legislation, ACI Reports has worked with hundreds of schools, colleges and universities across the UK. We know how to survey buildings when occupied by students whilst keeping disruption to an absolute minimum – not only to the students but for the Site Manager too. For peace of mind, we offer full UK coverage and manage the full compliance process end-to-end internally.

Key Services


Air conditioning systems are affected by the UK Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations (EPB). As the UK’s market-leading accredited provider of TM44 inspections, we can help you to tick off your legal obligations quickly, efficiently and without a fuss.


It is a legal requirement to have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) when a building is sold, let, constructed or modified – and it should be renewed every 10 years, subject to particular criteria. Our accredited and highly experienced energy assessors can help you to demonstrate compliance and mitigate risks.


Display Energy Certificates or DECs indicate the energy performance of public buildings using a scale that runs from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). Our accredited assessors can provide accurate, consistent DEC reporting at any UK location to help you demonstrate compliance, including in Scotland where the requirements for public buildings are different.

Our Accreditations

We hold ourselves accountable to the very highest industry standards; earning numerous accreditations from the most prestigious trade bodies.
