SBEM Calculations

The Service

Approved Document L2A of the Building Regulations states that all new buildings must be designed and built to a standard such that the calculated Building CO2 Emission Rate (BER) is no worse than a defined Target CO2 Emission Rate (TER).

SBEM Calculations are a mandatory requirement for any heated, new commercial building exceeding 50m2 floor area.

Nationwide can provide SBEM calculations for all commercial buildings, including:

  • Hotels
  • Hospitals
  • Offices
  • warehouses
  • Leisure Centres
  • Care Homes
  • and more …

SBEM calculates the energy cost and carbon emissions generated to heat, light, ventilate, cool and provide hot water to a building. SBEM calculations are also used to show compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations, and should be applied from the design stage of the build process.
