SAPS Calculations

For Self-Build, Builders and Developers

SAP Assessments for New Builds

All newly constructed residential properties in the UK require an individual new build SAP Calculation to be submitted to the appointed Building Control Body (BCB) before any building work commencing.

Approved Document L: Volume 1 of the Building Regulations in England and Wales (and other related build standards elsewhere within the UK) requires all new dwellings to achieve stringent annual carbon emissions targets and minimum thermal performance standards. This is demonstrated by undertaking a SAP Assessment which includes a DER/TER Calculation along with a DFEE/TFEE and DPER & TPER check (applicable to England and Wales only).

On completion of a development, an ‘As Built’ SAP Calculation is provided for each completed dwelling, which is also used to generate an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate.
