SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model) is a piece of software used to demonstrate compliance with Part L2 of Building Regulations. SBEM calculates the monthly energy use and carbon dioxide emissions of a building based on the building geometry, construction, HVAC and lighting.
SBEM Calculations are a mandatory requirement for any heated, new build commercial building exceeding 50m2 in floor area. Also some commercial extension and conversion projects will require an SBEM Calculation.
Design Stage – Building Control require a Design Stage SBEM Calculation to be submitted with your Building Regulations Application. Without the SBEM Calculation, Building Control will not allow the project to start on site.
As-built Stage – Building Control require an As-built Stage SBEM Calculation and EPC when the building is completed. Without this info it is unlikely that the building will achieve Final Building Control approval.
