SBEM calculations are required to comply with Part L2 of the Building Regulations.
Your building control body will request SBEM calculations when you are building, refurbishing or extending any commercial premises.
Very often we find that small changes need to be made to “initial designs” in liaison with the architect, developer or client to ensure the construction complies with the latest regulations.
It is essential to engage with an accredited consultant before finalising the design to make sure there are no surprises down the line.
We can support you at four different ways:
- Exploring the most energy-efficient option: we can model different options for insulation, lights and wall constructions, for example. This enables you to make the most cost-effective choices while improving energy efficiency and carbon emissions
- You’re ready for a SBEM calculation: you provide us with the relevant information (see below). We then model everything, tell you whether you’ve passed and send out the finished report
- Your project does not currently comply: if your project doesn’t pass Part L2 building regulations we will give you a range of options to support you with compliance
- You don’t have all the information: if you don’t have all the information, we can help you to fill in the blanks.
