Extending or altering domestic property? You may need a SAP Calculation for your Building Regulations submission.
The Building Regulations provide guidance on the thermal performance of extensions, ‘material change of use’ applications and alterations but do allow for flexibility if there is a design which does not strictly meet the requirements. We can assist with calculations in any of these scenarios.
Simply call us today for a quote, then send us your plans and specifications.
The most common scenario of the extensions above is the ‘Substantially Glazed Extension’.
If your extension has more than 25% of the floor area of the extension as glazing you may not comply with Building Regulations but there will be a solution. You will need us to model the house and extension against a ‘notional’ dwelling and find a solution that works best for you.
