What is a SAP?
SAP stands for ‘Standard Assessment Procedure.’ In essence, SAP assessment involves using a calculation method to predict the energy performance of a building. What type of buildings? For instance, houses, flats and all other residential properties. However, it is not just required to have SAP calculation carried out on a complete new build. It is also a requirement for certain extensions which exceed the threshold, as well as any conversions.
This calculation assesses the level of energy to be used. However, this takes the expected occupancy into account. In addition, based on an average, comfortable way of living.
The SAP calculation is a desk-based assessment. Furthermore, it is split into two parts. Firstly, the design stage. At this stage, the assessor will work up a preliminary SAP assessment. This is based upon the proposed/assumed design and specification to see if compliance is met. If the dwelling falls short of compliance, we work with our clients to find a solution. As well as this, we also ensure that this solution meets their requirements and budget.
This is known as Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA).
