SAP CALCULATIONS SERVICE
We offer a fast, affordable turnaround on your SAP calculations.
SAP stands for the Standard Assessment Procedure. It is the approved method for assessing the energy performance of dwellings.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR SAP CALCULATIONS WITH US?
Your JOTHAM DEVELOPERS LTD will review your project’s plans and specifications to produce a Design Stage SAP Calculation. Where required, we will then recommend improvements to meet the requirements within Part L of Building Regulations and any local energy efficiency requirements.
When your project is complete, we confirm the final specification with you and produce the As-Built SAP Calculation and EPC (Energy Performance Certificate).
WHAT IS A DESIGN STAGE SAP?
A Design Stage SAP Calculation is produced by your JOTHAM DEVELOPERS LTD using the plans and design/construction specifications for the project. This information allows us to calculate whether the proposed design is compliant with Part L of Building Regulations. We can also work with you to hit specific targets.
From the Design Stage SAP Calculation, reports can be produced confirming compliance at this stage and outlining the predicted energy performance of the design.
To achieve compliance, new build dwellings need to comply with the parameters outlined in Part L1A of Building Regulations. If the initial design/construction specification doesn’t achieve compliance, we can work with you to make alterations to ensure that it does.
Common alterations include improving the U-values of thermal elements, modelling heating systems with higher efficiencies, and modelling renewable technology.
WHAT ARE AS BUILT SAP CALCULATIONS?
As Built SAP Calculations bridge the gap between the design of the building on paper, and the actual finished structure. Details from the Design Stage SAP Calculation are updated to reflect the finished building. An As Built SAP Calculation must be completed before an energy performance certificate (EPC) can be produced.
WHEN SHOULD I GET MY SAP CALCULATIONS DONE?
The sooner the better! The overall energy performance of a building is heavily dictated by the actual fabric of the construction. It is much easier and cheaper to detect and rectify problems at the beginning of a project rather than the end.
