SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model) is a Government-defined process in accordance with Part L Building Control Regulations. It is a calculation of the energy performance of new commercial/industry/retail buildings.
There are 2 stages – the first stage called the ‘design’ stage needs to be completed and submitted to your Building Control Body or Approved Inspector at the same time as your Building Control Application. The second stage called the ‘as built’ stage comes into force when the build is completed and a ‘pass’ Certificate will need to be produced for presentation to your Inspector.
The all inclusive one-off cost for providing a full SBEM certificate to building control is dependent on the heated floor area of the building. On receipt of your drawings we will contact you to confirm the cost and required information. We will also advise you as to what is required to achieve compliance.
Our aim is to help you achieve a ‘pass’.
We also can provide advice and recommendations on all sustainable building services systems.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require advice or assistance.
