BUILDING CALCULATIONS (SAP's, EPC's, SBEM's)

R P Compliance Testing Ltd can provide your building calculations - SAP Ratings, Energy Performance Certificates (EPC's) and SBEM's

For domestic properties, the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP), is used to determine the energy efficiency of the dwelling. SAP ratings range from 1 to 100 and the higher the SAP score, the more energy efficient the building. SAP 2009 came into effect on 1st October 2010 together with the new Part L 2010

Since April 2008 all new dwellings require an 'On Completion Energy Performance Certificate' or 'OCEPC'. New homes marketed 'off-plan' before they are physically complete will not have a full Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) but instead have a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA)

All SAP, PEA and EPC calculations are created in-house by Lee O'Brien DipOCEA, ACABE, who is accredited with Elmhurst 

For non-domestic properties, detailed SBEM calculations are produced at design stage and submitted with a Building Regulation Approval application. Each building requires a separate submission from when the Part L 2010 came into effect on 4th October 2010 and it will usually be necessary to commission a mechanical & electrical specification at an early stage. Similar calculations may be required prior to this for planning purposes and to include carbon off-sets in the design
