Energy Performance Certificates New Build Scotland

The SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) is used to calculated the Energy Performance Certificates for new build in Scotland. All our SAP calculations are performed by a trained building services engineer, this means you can have peace of mind that the results are accurate with no grey areas. This can aid the EPC requirement for Building Control application. The Scottish EPC is different to the rest of the UK and the SAP EPC is more reliant on onsite renewables etc, which means our expertise in selecting solar PV or heat pumps depending on what suits your EPC requirements is accurate. We can also provide existing domestic energy assessments (DEA) for a standard EPC for rental or sale requirements.

The EPC is also a requirement for some energy schemes and grants such as ECO, Home Energy Efficiency programme and Renewable Heat Incentive. There may also be minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) for landlords.
