SBEM is a method of assessing the energy performance of a non-domestic building. It is used to do two things:
- To demonstrate compliance with Part L of the building regs
- To produce an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
An SBEM calculation provides an output in the form of a ‘BRUKL’ report, which is required by building control prior to development commencing. For more information see What is SBEM and why use it?
