SAPs stands for the British Government’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) for Energy Rating of Dwellings.
The indicators of energy performance are:
A SAP assessment is used for assessing the energy performance and CO2 emissions of a dwellings. This assessment is usually used to demonstrate compliance against Approved Document Part L1A of Building Regulations.
SAP calculations are normally carried as ‘draft stage’, ‘as designed’ and ‘as built’. We can provide pre-design options as well as energy demand calculations for accurate selection of the dwelling’s envelope, ventilation, lighting, renewables and heating systems.
We are fully qualified to carry out SAP Calculations assessments under part L1A for new dwellings and Part L1B for residential conversions and extensions.
As part of our services we can develop a 3D model to fully assess CO2 emissions, energy consumption, passive solar design, renewables, ventilation and other services such as thermal comfort and daylighting.
