You will need to have an SBEM calculation completed if you are planning to construct a new commercial or non-domestic building. With strict emission targets to meet, getting the specification right on your development is more important now than ever.
BREEAM New Construction
Many planning departments now expect developers of large projects to complete a BREEAM assessment. This detailed assessment goes beyond the requirements of Building Regulations and ensures your building is designed and constructed to a high standard.
Air Leakage or Air Tightness Testing
With tighter regulations pushing down the heat demand of new buildings, you’re likely to require an air leakage test for your new building. We know the pressure on site so let us work with you for your Commercial Air Leakage Testing dates.
Commercial Acoustic Testing
Acoustic Testing (or Sound Testing) will likely by required within your planning conditions. Acoustic Surveys measure the noise and vibration that can negatively impact the relationship between a building, the environment and the neighbours.
Is your Local Planning Authority (LPA) insisting on renewable technology targets? With different requirements set by each LPA, you may need to change your design for different authorities.
London Plan Energy Strategy
Are you developing in the London boroughs? There are stringent CO2 targets in place specific to London that reach far beyond current Building Regulation targets. It’s always worth checking with the LPA before submitting your planning application.
Thermal Bridging Analysis
Are you experiencing heat loss in your dwelling? Thermal bridges are unwanted routes of heat transfer through building fabric, occurring at junction points between heat loss elements. Analysis can help you identify design issues that cause condensation.
Noise and Vibration Surveys
Are you building near a train line or busy road? You may need to provide evidence at the planning stage to show you have taken the right steps to sound proof your building. Don't risk your end result and have an initial survey at pre-construction stage.
New development land needs to be assessed for its ecological value. Although not currently a building regulation, it can be required as part of a planning application and is needed if you're building to a Code for Sustainable Homes or BREEAM standard.
