How does the overall process work throughout the design and build process?
Vision Energy recommend carrying out your SAP Calculations at a design stage, however if your dwelling/s is already complete don’t worry, we can still carry out your SAP Calculations at an ‘as-built’ stage, below outlines the step by step process Vision Energy will take to ensure compliance to Building Regulations Part L1a,
Initial Design Review – Vision will review the plans and information provided within architectural drawings or specifications
Design Stage Calculations – Design calculations will be carried out to review the compliance to all elements in Building Regulations
Design Review & Alterations – Were required, Vision will advise on any alterations that are required to the design of the dwelling/s to comply with Building Regulations Part L1a, ensuring that the design alterations are cost effective and feasible on site,
Design SAP Calculations & Predicted EPC – Vision will issue the design stage calculations and predicted EPC for submission to Building control/Local Authority
As-Built SAP Calculations Review – Once the construction of the dwelling/s is nearing completion, Vision Energy will review the construction details compared to the design SAP Calculations to ensure the dwelling/s have been built to the specification, If any alterations have been made, Vision will rerun the calculations and review compliance
As Built SAP Calculations & EPC – Once the review has been complete and confirmed, Vision Energy will issue and lodge the As-built SAP Calculations & EPC for submission to Building Control/ Local Authority
