SAP Calculations & New Build EPC’s

A SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) is a requirement of the building regulations for all new build dwellings.

The SAP provides estimated energy costs of the dwelling including but not limited to the following areas; the performance of the heating system and the gains of any renewable energy.

A SAP also includes a buildings CO2 emissions. To pass a SAP one of the four criterions states this must be the same or lower than a notional dwelling.

Building Control / NHBC require a Design Stage SAP before work is allowed to proceed on site.

At the end of the dwelling completion they also require the As built SAP’s and EPC to issue a final completion certificate.

The completion Certificate then allows the dwelling to be sold or leased
