SAP Calculations for New Builds

If you are building a new home in the UK, Building Control will ask you for SAP Calculations for new builds.

SAP Calculations for New BuildsMany designs do not comply with the minimum requirements of Part L1a, and regulations can vary depending on when and where you started your build.

You will be asked to demonstrate that your new build does not exceed a unique target for carbon emissions. From 2014 you will also need to meet a target on the thermal performance of the fabric if you are constructing in England.

We can help you overcome these hurdles easily and quickly, offering solutions and guidance throughout the process.
