SBEM Calculations

Don't put any more risk on your Commercial Build. We'll take you through the SBEM Calculations.

SBEM Calculations - At what stage(s) does this apply during your build?

What the Regulations say...

A SBEM Calculation (short for Simplified Building Energy Model) is a Building Regulation for new-build non-residential buildings. Part L of the Building Regulations apply in England and Wales (Section 6 applies in Scotland). 

An SBEM is only required on a building of 50m2 or more. 

Getting that all important "Yes"

The SBEM addresses 4 critical areas:

  • Building fabric/U-Values.
  • Building services.
  • Ventilation.
  • Cooling.

Level 5 SBEM for projects with Atriums, a complex Ventilation System or Automatic Blind Control Systems.

Dynamic Simulation Modelling for achieving BREEAM or an overheating risk. 

Simple 5-Step process

We will:

1. Review your Plans & Specification. 

2. Liaise directly with your BCO (Building Control Officer) & Design Team (if you would like us to) 

3. Make recommendations.

4. Complete all 3 parts of your SBEM Calculations, plus your Acoustic & Air Testing.

5. Email your SBEM Reports within your deadlines. 

Which building regulations apply in your area?

Building regulations and energy assessments can vary according to which region your project is in. Use our checker to make sure you are aware of what you need.
