SAPs

New Build Dwellings

We provide SAP cal
culations, with Building Regulations Compliance L1A reports at Design Stage and As-Built. These include a Design Stage Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) and on-construction Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

All of our quotations allow for a number of options to be tried to determine what is most cost-effective for your development.

Extensions

There are alternative ways of demonstrating compliance with Part L1B for extensions.

The options which give most design flexibility are the 'Area-weighted U-value method' or the 'Whole dwelling calculation method'.

The latter involves full SAP calculations as it compares the actual proposed extension with a 'notional' extension where the area of glazing is no more than 25% and where the thermal elements meet the minimum standard.

This is more complex than SAP calculations for a new dwelling, but we provide you with everything you need for Building Control and can also on additional improvements that can improve the overall energy efficiency.

Conversions & Refurbishments

If you are converting an existing building e.g. a barn conversion, a house into flats or offices into dwellings, you will need to provide SAP calculations to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations L1B. This is less onerous than for new build dwellings but needs to show that key thermal elements and services meet or exceed the minimum standards.

The calculations and report we provide fully meet the requirements and are designed to send direct to Building Control.
