Do I Need an Energy Calculation for Commercial New Builds?

SAP Calculations are a requirement of the current building regulations.  It is also required for any new buildings that are constructed. Take a closer look at energy calculation for your commercial buildings.

Commercial buildings should always adhere to specific requirements, and this includes energy calculations. This refers to a set of SAP Calculations that are made, based on various aspects of your building.

This is required for any new commercial buildings that are being erected, as well as current buildings that are sold. This can be a complex process. This is why experienced commercial assessors should be used to accurately. This will determine your energy calculations.

There are different construction types as well as various heating and energy technologies. These can be used to determine the rating of your building.

New developers and self-builders often find these calculations to be a bit challenging.  This is because different rules apply for commercial buildings as compared to domestic ones. There are different rules that apply, and you should always be aware of these requirements.

SAP refers to ‘Standard Assessment Procedure’ and it is a government approved a system to assess the energy usage of any new building. You will be given a rating and this should fall within the specified limits for your specific building. In general, the higher the rating, the lower your emissions and fuel costs will be.

It's important to know that you have to get an acceptable SAP Calculation in order to meet the current building regulations. Without this, building control will not sign off your development and your property will not be able to be sold.
