SAP Assessments & On-Construction EPCs

What is a SAP Assessment?

SAP 2005 and 2009 are the Government's Standard Assessment Procedure for Energy Rating of Dwellings. SAP is adopted by Government as part of the UK national methodology for calculation of the energy performance of buildings. It is used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations Part F (Northern Ireland) and to provide energy ratings for dwellings.

The SAP assessment is carried out at the design stage of the build and the calculation is based on the energy balance. This takes into account a range of factors that contribute to energy efficiency, such as:

  • Materials used in the construction of the dwelling
  • Thermal insulation of the building fabric
  • Ventilation characteristics of the dwelling
  • Efficiency and control of the heating system
  • Solar gains through the openings of the building
  • Fuel used to produce space and water heating
  • Renewable energy technologies

NI Energy Services assessors are fully accredited with Elmhurst Energy Systems and trained to calculate your SAP assessment from your architect's drawings and specifications. A predictive EPC is produced through SAP at the design stage and once the building is complete, the full Energy Performance Certificate and SAP (as built) calculation is produced for Building Control.

An 'on construction' Energy Performance Certificate is a legal requirement when selling a new dwelling and the sale of that dwelling cannot complete without one. Likewise when a new dwelling is at completion stage an EPC is required by Building Control to enable the property to be signed off and a completion certificate issued.
