What is IES TaP for Code for Sustainable Homes? 

IES TaP for Code for Sustainable Homes is a secure online collaborative portal for managing the evidence gathering and credit tracking process for Code for Sustainable Homes assessments. It has been designed to manage the whole project team and keep all projects and evidence documents in one place, taking the hassle out of managing this process through email or fax and separate tracking spreadsheets.

Using IES TaP ultimately speeds up the evidence gathering process saving the Assessor time and money, and allowing the Assessor to realistically take on more projects over and above their current maximum.

Who uses IES TaP for Code for Sustainable Homes? 

IES TaP for Code for Sustainable Homes is used by all members of the project team with different functionality based on their role on the project. Ultimately the Assessor is responsible for co-ordinating and approving documents that the project team have provided. All members of the project team will be given their own login to access their projects

How do I use IES TaP, what software do I need to install? 

IES TaP is run entirely online so you do not need to install any software. This means all users can access their projects anytime, anywhere, from any computer or device with an Internet connection

Is all my data secure? 

Yes, we take security very seriously. All data transfer is 256bit SSL encrypted which means it cannot be read by anyone else. All data is backed up daily to prevent any data loss in accordance with industry best practice

What type of documents can be uploaded and is there a size limit? 

We support uploading all file types, be that PDF, AutoCAD drawings, emails, Word documents etc. We do not impose a size limit but operate a "fair usage policy". Completed projects will have their documents archived. This means you do not have to worry about going over your email size limit if using a manual email approach

How does the BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment scheme get handled by the IES TaP system? Do I have the ability to set up a different address for each domestic unit? As BRE provides certification for each unit, how do I set up the apartments/blocks on IES TaP individually under one address?  

The BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment tool for IES TaP does not allow the allocation of credits against dwelling type and should be used as an evidence gathering tool for all dwellings, however all other functionality works in the same way as other methods. The assessment of credits should be used on a worst case scenario per credit and dwelling similar to the way Code is set up on the IES TaP system

What type of documents can be uploaded and is there a size limit?

We support uploading all file types, be that PDF, AutoCAD drawings, emails, Word documents etc. We do not impose a size limit but operate a "fair usage policy". Completed projects will have their documents archived. This means you do not have to worry about going over your email size limit if using a manual email approach.
