What is an SBEM assessment?
SBEM stands for Simplified Building Energy Model and is the method used to check the energy
efficiency of a new or converted non-residential building. It is also used to produce Energy
Performance Certificates, needed to sell or let your property.
With a growing number of developments having to meet increased energy performance standards, it
is vital that an assessor is instructed early to ensure that your design meets building regulations.

When is an SBEM Assessment Required?
There are 2 main stages to an SBEM assessment – 1) design & 2) as built. It is important to instruct an
assessor as early in your project as possible, as there is nothing worse than building a property, only
to find that the insulation levels aren’t sufficient, or that the heating/cooling system doesn’t meet
the required standard.
We can help you avoid these pitfalls by assessing your design before you have even broken ground.
