SAP Calculations

Encon Associates can carry out SAP Calculations for planning applications, conditions of planning consent or compliance with Part L of Building Regulations.

It is a requirement for Building Regulation compliance that a SAP energy assessment (Standard Assessment Procedure) is carried out to demonstrate Part L compliance for residential buildings prior to Building Control sign off.

Often local authorities require a minimum reduction in CO2 emissions over and above Building Regulations from either improvements in fabric efficiency OR the use of Low or Zero Carbon Technologies.

Whether your project is a brand new dwelling, an extension to an existing dwelling or the
conversion of an existing building, then SAP calculations are needed to satisfy Building Regulations.

SAP Calculations for New Build Dwellings

Encon Associates are able to calculate the Dwelling Emission Rate (DER) and the Dwelling Fabric Energy Efficiency (DFEE), both of which are benchmarked against the current standards set out in Approved Document Part L in order to comply with Building Regulations.
