Commercial EPC (SBEM)

What is a Commercial EPC?

If you are renting, selling or building a new commercial premises, you need a Non-domestic EPC.  EPCs last for 10 years from submittal.

An NDEA (Non-Domestic Energy Assesor) will assess the energy outputs of your building and use the calculation model SBEM to produce your Regulation Compliance Report and EPC. 

How Does it Work:

  • 1.

    SBEM model - Model the building using SBEM software based on the design drawings provided by the team or a survey undertaken on an existing building.

  • 2.

    SAP/SBEM calculations - to demonstrate that the DER is no greater than the calculated TER.  

  • 3.

    Regulations compliance consultancy - review existing building services design and provide sufficient statements to inform building control officers that the building fabric and building services are compliant.  

  • 4.

    Solar gains assessment - Calculations to that appropriate passive solar measures have been made to reduce summertime solar gains.   

  • 5.

    Remediation - in the event of a failure in any of these criteria, provide guidance to the design team on how to remediate and ensure compliance.   

  • 6.

    Draft EPC - the issue of a draft EPC if required for marketing purposes.  

  • 7.

    As built stage - upgrade the above work to an As Built SAP calculation upon completion of the build.
