SAP Ratings

The European Energy Performance in Buildings Directive is set out in Building Regulation Approved Document Part L.

Ce2 are geared up to undertake all domestic and non-domestic Part L requirements and future regulations currently being considered.

What is a SAP Rating?

SAP is the current ‘Energy Audit’ process (Standard Assessment Procedure)
SAP scores a building for Energy Efficiency between 1 and 100.
Part L1 and SAP are separate but related pieces of legislation.
The SAP procedure incorporates lighting energy, renewable and energy saving technology and takes into account the effects of thermal bridging.

  • SAP focuses on Energy Efficiency
  • Part L focuses on Carbon Emissions

Part L1A revolutionises building regulations for domestic properties by laying down energy conservation standards to which all new build houses or apartment projects must adhere.  Part L1B regulates energy standards within the existing building stock by providing standards for extensions and renovation work.

Ce2 regularly perform Part L1 compliancy studies for domestic dwellings including the submission of SAP calculations and Part L1 compliance documents to Building Control.
Whether it is a new housing development or apartment complex, or an extension to your house, no matter how small or large, we can comprehensively undertake all your Part L1 and SAP Calculation requirements.
