SBEM Calculations


SBEM is the abbreviation for Simplified Building Energy Model (Calculations), which is the Government-approved software tool currently used to verify CO2 emission rates for new buildings for compliance with Part L2A of the Building Regulations (England and Wales).

SBEM software tool can also be used to assess how energy efficient a commercial property such as (offices, leisure centres, shops, education buildings, residential homes, storage and industrial etc) are in relation to new standards and benchmarked against existing buildings within England and Wales.

The SBEM assessment is based on the buildings energy usage and carbon dioxide emissions and the results can be presented in a format that can be viewed from month to month, we have the ability to use the tool to benchmark building portfolio and target energy savings, which result in financial savings for clients.

We have made our service as efficient and user friendly as possible. By providing us with the building drawings if available and details requested on our data form, we will contact you with a fully inclusive quotation to help you demonstrate building regulation compliance.


WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

There are 2 stages to the assessment - the first stage (called the 'design' stage) needs to be completed and we complete a design-stage report and supporting information which will be 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 or nearly completed and an as-built stage assessment is carried out and an Energy Performance Certificate will need to be produced f will be submitted to your Building Control Body or Approved Inspector.


HOW CAN WE HELP?

Our aim is to help you achieve a 'pass' and we provide the following:


URGENT DEADLINE?
