BEM Calculations – What are they?
Block Architects Energy advice and calculation services provide SBEM Calculations operating throughout the UK drawing on our consultants’ many years of experience to get the best results for your design. If required, we will advise on the best construction to suit your requirements. Whether you are undertaking a new build or requiring calculations for an existing build our professional consultants are only a call away.
SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model) is a software tool developed by BRE that provides an analysis of a non-domestic building’s energy consumption.
SBEM is used for non domestic buildings in support of the National Calculation Methodology (NCM) and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
The tool helps to determine CO2 emission rates for new buildings in compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) and equivalent Regulations in Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Jersey. It is also used to generate Energy Performance Certificates for non-domestic buildings in construction, for sale or let.
SBEM was developed by BRE for the Department for Communities and Local Government
