We work closely with the Meridian Consult team providing Part L compliance, SAP, SBEM, EPC and energy calculation services – you can access a complete package of Building Control services, Fire Risk Assessment, Technical Audit services and Building Warranties via the Meridian link here.
We work with developers and architects across the UK, so are well versed in the different regulations you will come across if your project is in England, Wales or Scotland.
You may also have to achieve energy reduction or generation targets to meet planning conditions, we can help you by looking at different strategies for achieving the targets
Orangeries, glazed links and garden rooms are very popular with people extending their homes but you will need some energy calculations to satisfy Part L of the building regulations. Where we are involved from design stage we can provide you with all the right choices to guarantee a “pass”. Even removing the doors between your house and conservatory can trigger the need for Part L compliance. In this highly glazed extension to a 1960’s house we recommended improving the glazing performance to achieve compliance.
We work as part of your design team right from the start of your project to ensure that the correct approach to energy efficient design is factored in and that targets can be achieved, this means that compliance with Part L of the Building Regs is designed in, fully costed and clearly communicated.
