In order to ensure that a new building meets energy efficiency standards, there are a range of construction services you need.
Our range of service include SAP Calculations, SBEM Calculations, Air Pressure Testing and Water Efficiency Calculations – all of which ensure that your property meets UK regulations before being put on the market.
A SAP Calculation (Standard Assessment Procedure) measures the energy efficiency of a building. It is a requirement for all new build properties in England and Wales, but also applies to many extensions.
Here at Compliant EPC, we have the essential accreditations to be able to carry out a valid SAP Calculation, along with the training and experience to provide a reliable service.
This calculation provides a result as to how energy efficient a commercial building is. A SBEM is required at the beginning of a building project, and is relevant to most commercial buildings, including offices; restaurants; shops and leisure centres.
Again, Compliant EPC are certified to carry out full SBEM calculations for the whole range of non-domestic properties.
Air Pressure Testing
Essentially, an air pressure test calculates air ‘leakage’, by identifying places in your property where air can escape. Not only will this benefit home buyers by giving them the reassurance that they will have comfortable day to day living in their new property, it will also give them an idea of how much they will need to spend on energy bills compared to other properties.
Water Efficiency Calculation
This calculation is used to work out how water efficient a property is, based on how much water is used each day by each person in a household. This calculation is specifically important for new build properties, as the amount of water received by each person in a household needs to be controlled.
