As of 1st April 2006, Part L of the new buildings regulations now requires that all residential developments must conform to specific target requirements on energy efficiency, CO2 emissions and running costs. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) must be provided by Construction firms and builders to prove residential energy efficiency compliance. An EPC shows the energy performance of a property to prospective buyers or tenants, helping them make an informed decision about its energy efficiency and, therefore, about the likely ongoing efficiency and cost of heating. The method used to rate residential energy efficiency is the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP). A SAP calculation is the only way to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations Approved Document L1A (New Dwellings), and Approved Document L1B (Existing Dwellings). SES have Elmhurst Accredited SAP Assessors who can carry out SAP Calculations for compliance with Part L1A of the Building Regulations. We will prepare; Design Stage SAPs As Built SAPs and Energy Performance Certificates
