It is a requirement for Building Regulation compliance that an SBEM energy assessment (Simplified Building Energy Method) is carried out to demonstrate Part L compliance for commercial 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 and OR the use of Low or Zero Carbon Technologies.
Encon Associates are able to undertake SBEM assessments to determine reduction in CO2 emissions and report to the Local Authority accordingly, undertake SBEM assessments at design stage and as built stage and provide advice on Part L compliance to ensure that Building Regulation compliance is complied with.
We are able to undertake a full range of energy assessment services from level 3 and 4 SBEM right through to level 5 Dynamic Simulations using the latest advanced simulation software.
We provide a number of services specifically designed to help mitigate commonly required planning conditions, support pre-application requirements, planning conditions, and planning objections and refusals.
