SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure for domestic dwellings) and SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model for non-dwelling buildings)
SAP and SBEM Calculations are the governments approved methodology for calculating the energy performance of buildings. It is used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations Part L requirements and to produce Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)for new buildings.
The score is based on factors such as insulation, air tightness, window performance, heating systems, ventilation and lighting.
Renewable technologies such as solar power are also taken into account.
SAP/SBEM calculations should ideally be undertaken at design stage as this allows changes to the design to be considered to achieve the required performance.
The latest Part L Building Regulations (Conservation of Fuel and Power) date from 1st October 2010 and it is important to ensure you have competent professional advice on how your development can achieve the requirements in the most cost effective and practical way.
Because we provide services for Air Tightness Testing, Energy Performance Certificates, Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM Assessments under one roof we can ensure a co-ordinated, cost-effective and seamless service to ensure your development meets the best possible ratings.
We will require a set of scaled plans and are usually able to provide you with
the calculations within 72 hours.
