An SBEM Calculation is the Government recognised process of calculating the energy efficiency of commercial property in accordance with UK Building Regulations Part L.
SBEM or Simplified Building Energy Model, will seek to demonstrate that the Building Emission Rate (BER) in terms of kgCO2/m² does not exceed the Target Emission Rate (TER) set by regulation whether that be for an Office, Hotel, School, Industrial Warehouse, Nursing Home or even Halls of Residence in Universities.
At L2 Energy Consulting we specialize in the provision of SBEM Calculations and therefore have a huge amount of experience to achieve Building Regulation Compliance every time. More information on our SBEM services ».
Thermal Modelling by Dynamic Simulation is becoming more common to demonstrate the way a building will behave in periods of sustained hot weather, such as during the Summer of 2013 in the UK, or whether indoor air quality levels are met through the use of a natural ventilation strategy, as opposed to a mechanical solution.
SAP Calculations are required to show compliance with Building Regulations Part L1A for newly built dwellings and Part L1B for conversion work.
In previous editions of Building Regulations a dwelling has merely had to meet a Target Emission Rate for CO2 emissions, however current requirements add extra complexity by having to also meet a Target Fabric Energy Efficiency standard putting the emphasis not only on energy consumption, but build quality as well.
