SAP L1b conversions

Specialists in SAP calculations for conversions

Current Building Regulations insist on SAP Calculations and an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) for every new residential dwelling whether it is a new-build or a conversion. The EPC contains information about the building’s energy use and typical energy costs, and rates properties on a scale between A, the most efficient, and G, the least efficient.

SAP L1b calculations for conversions

If your project is a barn conversion or a Church, a single dwelling into flats or a change of use such as an office or shop into a dwelling it is likely that Building Control will ask for Approved Document Part L1b SAP Calculations for conversions or extensions.
The requirement is that controlled fittings and building materials are required to meet set efficiency standards, which can sometimes be more stringent than the requirements for new builds under Approved Document Part L1a.

We will undertake SAP calculations for conversions from plans and construction specifications and ensure that both new and existing features meet the regulation standards required. This includes identifying where existing walls and floors can be left untouched or where new features such as heating and insulation might require improvement to help the overall dwelling achieve a pass.

We have extensive construction knowledge which is ideal for dealing with Part L1b Regulations so we can provide you with all the assistance you need. We will be able to assist and advise you with your SAP Conversion requirement without having to change your plans and we can even deal with your Building Control Officer to understand exactly what is required and take care of everything for you.
