What is a New Build EPC?

Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP)

SAP refers to a certificate created by an On-Construction Domestic Energy Assessor, using the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) methodology and software.

Any new dwelling, or dwellings created by conversion or change of use are required to have SAP calculations carried out.

The assessor will then in turn produce an EPC outlining the energy efficiency of that new build. The assessor will use architect plans and drawings, together with detailed information around construction, heating and ventilation, amongst others.

Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM)

SBEMs measure the overall energy efficiency of buildings and are used to create the EPC.

To meet Part L2 of the Building Regulations, all new commercial buildings over 50 square metres must pass on completed SBEM calculations. While some extensions, conversions and renovations will also need SBEM calculations, not all of Part L will apply to them.
