Also known as SAP Calculations, SAP Ratings or SAP Certificates, SAP stands for Standard Assessment Procedure and is the government’s recommended method system for measuring energy ratings of residential properties.
A SAP is carried out to show compliance with building regulations when working on projects such as converting an existing property into any number of dwellings, a new domestic build or when an extension or conservatory requires glazing.
Upon completion of a SAP, an EPC is produced which is required on any dwelling created after the 1st April 2008. A full SAP EPC is valid for ten years and is required on builds such as conversions, new builds or when a building has been changed from a house to a flat.
It’s recommended that a SAP is carried out in the early stages of the project, and it performed by using SAP software. It requires information such as the measurements of the walls, floors, roof and windows as well as information on the plans, sections and elevations.
