SBEM is a computer program that provides an analysis of a building's energy consumption. It has been adopted by government as part of the UK national methodology for calculation of the energy performance of buildings. It is used to demonstrate compliance for with Part L of the Building Regulations by comparing the designed Building Emission Rate (BER) with an SBEM calculated Target Emission Rate (TER).For new buildings an initial SBEM calculation is carried out at design stage to confirm that the specification such as insulation and the fixed building services (heating,Lighting and Ventilation) meet minimum design limits. When the construction of the building is complete final adjustment calculation to reflect any changes during construction will be required to confirm the as-constructed building is consistent with the BER. The calculation will usually include the result of an air permeability test, buildings less than 500m² may not require a test. This is then accompanied by an Energy Performance Certificate and submitted to building control before a final completion certificate can be issued.

I can provide all your SBEM and Building Regulation Part L compliance needs whatever your postcode all areas are provided for as well as the surrounding counties in the Northwest such as Manchester SBEM, Liverpool SBEM, Wirral SBEM, Manchester SBEM and will travel throughout the UK.
SBEM calculations provide an energy rating of the building and Certificate for building control compliance. We provide sbem calculations for all types of commercial building throughout the uk to provide a national service - SBEM UK. We send you a PDF document to show compliance with Building Regulation Part L . No site inspections is required as the rating is produced at design stage. As a Accredited SBEM Assessor we are able to answer all your Energy queries.
From the 1st January 2006 all new commercial buildings are required to have SBEM calculations. At Parry & Partners we can work together to develop a planned schedule to certify your proposed development with the required SBEM and EPC and can negotiate price on multiple developments.
All commercial premises now require a SBEM calculations on construction or modification and a Commercial Energy Performance Certificate. Only qualified level 4 SBEM energy assessors may carry out energy assessments and issue SBEM calculations and commercial EPCs.
An energy assessor must be a member of a government approve accreditation scheme. Parry & Partners our accreditated with Northgate and HVCA to produce SBEM and commercial energy performance certificates on commercial buildings up to 150,000 sq ft. (level 4).
