SBEM Calculations

Are you in the process of constructing a commercial property and want to ensure it complies with the Part L building regulations? Look no further! Our team at Complete Sustainability is here to provide you with top-notch SBEM calculations that will not only optimise energy performance but also guarantee regulatory compliance.

What Are SBEM Calculations?

SBEM calculations, short for simplified building energy model calculations, are an essential aspect of assessing a commercial property’s compliance with the Part L building regulations.

These calculations are carried out using government-approved modelling software and take into account various factors, including building materials, ventilation and lighting systems, cooling mechanisms, heating options, and hot water provisions.

Additionally, the utilisation of renewable energy sources like solar power, wind turbines, and ground-air heating influences the final results.

By conducting SBEM calculations, we can provide you with a comprehensive overview of your property’s carbon emissions and energy efficiency, allowing you to make informed decisions during the construction process.

The Importance of SBEM Calculations

Understanding the significance of SBEM calculations is crucial for any builder or developer. These calculations are required by building control bodies to assess compliance with Part L2 building regulations.

Before undertaking any construction, extension, or refurbishment of commercial buildings, it is necessary to have a comprehensive understanding of the building’s energy efficiency.

Through SBEM calculations, we generate a BRUKL report, which provides an energy efficiency rating for the building. If the report shows that the rate is below the target emission rate, it indicates compliance with the regulations.

The Role of EPCs

Once construction is complete and all SBEM specifications have been followed, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is produced based on the Simplified Building Energy Model calculations. The EPC serves as a documented confirmation of your property’s energy efficiency and compliance with regulations. It is an essential requirement for renting, selling, or leasing a commercial property.
