Part L: Volume 1 SAP – New Build Dwellings

SAP calculations are an integral part of the design process and are required as part of your full plans application for Building Regulation approval, i.e. the initial ‘as-designed’ SAP is required before work starts on site.

The calculation takes into account the following factors which contribute to energy efficiency:

  • Thermal insulation of the building fabric (walls, floor, roof and glazing)
  • Thermal bridging
  • Air permeability
  • Mechanical ventilation
  • Heating system efficiency, controls and water flow temperature
  • Hot water system
  • The fuel used to provide space and water heating
  • Renewables
