SAP and EPC

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is used by the Government to assess and compare the energy and environmental performance of dwellings. This is needed to comply with energy and environmental policy regulations. 

These provide information which is a mandatory requirement for any new build dwelling or new dwellings created by conversion.

SAP is used to show compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations and is applied at the design stage of the build process. It calculates the energy cost and carbon emissions generated to heat, light, ventilate and provide hot water to a dwelling.

LABC has launched a suite of 250 Registered Construction Details (RCDs) to help you combat the problem of cold bridging in construction that will minimise heat loss through the weak junction points in a building’s outer envelope. 

Our ESconsult SAP team members are fully qualified assessors and can provide:

  • A SAP and EPC for new build dwellings or dwellings which have been converted. 
  • SAP calculations for substantially glazed extensions where the amount of glazing exceeds 25% floor area.

The amount you pay reflects the level of service required and is per dwelling
