NHER - Are you ready to comply?
Since April 2006, Part L has changed the standards for domestic new build. All new developments must reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20% over the current building standard.
What does this mean for you?
SAP 2005 will be used for Part L 2006 compliance to calculate whether the annual CO2 emissions rate of the dwelling (DER) does not exceed the target set by reference to a notional building (TER). The Elemental, Target U-value, and Carbon Index methods will not be applicable anymore.
All assessments must be undertaken by certified SAP assessors.
Our comprehensive approach enables us to provide you with the knowledge to address any areas highlighted by the SAP assessment and implement measures to ensure the design complies. We will work with you on renewable technology and energy efficiency measures to achieve compliance.
- Our surveyors are authorised Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) assessors
- We work from electronic plans to offer you a rapid response on new build projects
