SBEM energy ratings The energy data and certification you need for commercial buildings
Our specially trained energy team has substantial experience in providing energy rating services and design advice for new-build, converted or extended commercial premises. They will:
- provide fast, efficient calculations from plans and drawings without the need for any site visits
- help you achieve compliance in the most cost-effective way, using their extensive experience and expertise to recommend the most efficient, low-cost solutions
- save you time if you're also using NHBC Building Control - you will only need to submit your plans and drawings once and our teams will work together to discharge building control conditions as quickly as possible
- offer BREEAM assessments as well as SBEM if required
Why you need SBEM Energy Ratings
Building Regulation Part L2A 2010/2013 requires that SBEM data for proposed new commercial premises is submitted to your Building Control body before work starts on site as well as on completion of the build. Some Local Authorities ask for the calculations at planning stage.
SBEM data is also required to complete the mandatory Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) or, for the largest and public buildings such as libraries, the Display Energy Certificate (DEC).
When do you need the service?
- You'll need to let us have plans, drawings and a detailed specification of your proposed development. If you're using NHBC Building Control, we'll already have most of what we need. If not, you can use our free Extranet service to upload your documents online, saving time on print and post.
