for new build homes

New Build Energy Performance Certificate
Every new build domestic property requires an Energy Performance Certificate & Water Calculations that show complience with Part L of the building regulations. Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is used to generate a new build EPC whilst Reduced data SAP (RdSAP) is used for existing stock. Dynamic Energy Assessors will provide the required EPC as either a stand-alone commission or included within the Code Assessment

Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP)
We include water calculations in any SAP calculations we perform. Because SAP calculations are a desktop exercise with no site visit the data provided is key. For clarity we also provide a set of terms of engagement

A new national standard
The Code for Sustainable Homes has been developed to enable a step change in sustainable building practice for new homes. It has been prepared by the Government in close working consultation with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and Construction Industry Research and Information, and through consultation with a Senior Steering Group consisting of Government, industry and NGO representatives.

The Code is intended as a single national standard to guide industry in the design and construction of sustainable homes. It is a means of driving continuous improvement, greater innovation and exemplary achievement in sustainable home building.

The Code complements the system of Energy Performance Certificates introduced in June 2007 under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). The EPBD requires that all homes, when they are sold or leased, have an Energy Performance Certificate providing key information about the energy efficiency/ carbon performance of the home. Energy assessment under the Code will use the same calculation methodology therefore avoiding the need for duplication.

Code compliance is voluntary for non funded domestic buildings however; home builders are encouraged to follow Code principles set out in this publication for a number of reasons:

  • The Government is considering making assessment under Code standards mandatory in the future
  • Many councils use the Code Assessment complience as part of their planning requirements
  • Code conformity is required for social housing
