All UK residential buildings are assessed under Standard Assessment Procedures (SAP), so SAP compliance is of utmost importance during the planning of your self-build home. To meet SAP requirements, Frame Technologies can assist in a wide range of building code requirements, including excellent U-Value calculations and air pressure testing, to achieve the highest possible rating for your project.
Where planning legislation dictates, Frame Technologies can offer Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) and SAP calculations. Onsite work should not commence until the ‘as designed’ calculations have been submitted to Building Control. Upon completion, an ‘as built’ assessment and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will also need to be submitted to Building Control.
We can also aid with the creation of energy statements to offer guidance on building fabric performance and the sourcing of sustainable materials to achieve excellent BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) ratings. Our experts can also advise on how best to improve building fabric to reduce the Dwelling Emission Rate (DER).
