SAP for New Build

If you are building a new home in the UK, Building Control will need a set of SAP Calculations prior to any building work.

Part L1A of the building regulations sets stringent targets in England and Wales for carbon emissions and the thermal performance of the building fabric in new build schemes. Section 6 does a similar job in Scotland.

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

SAP Calculations for New Builds – How Do They Work?

We work side by side with our clients, helping them to establish a design which is not only compliant with Part L requirements but also meets local planning policy and regional carbon targets. We assess projects from architects drawings, construction details and building services design, meaning that there’s no need for site visits.

The assessment process ultimately provides a SAP Rating, which demonstrates to any purchasers or occupants the energy performance of that dwelling in carbon terms.

We will never fail a project and will always provide solutions and feedback for achieving your objective.

"BE are fantastic building energy assessors, with competency across many areas. We have found them very useful on small and large projects. With the larger projects they can provide a range of assessments with one point of contact. We submitted a planning application for 224 residential apartments for a site in Luton. BE provided the flood, acoustic, heat loss and SUDS reports. The scheme was consented and reports were excellent. We have found them to been frank and honest with their advice. They are also lovely people to work with… which is very important."
