Welcome to sapratings.com Online

Celebrating our 25th Year Saving Carbon and Energy in the UK - SAP Ratings.com and Green Heat Ltd are here to help guide and assit your way through the various planning and building regulations conditions affecting your construction project.

Deciding on sustainable, environmentally efficient construction is no longer simply a question of conscience. The UK Government is putting in place strategies that will aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide, which research has proved to be a major contributing factor to global warming. One such strategy involves the long awaited modification to Part L1 of the Building Regulations, which came into effect in April 2002. These amendments insist upon the calculation of a Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) Rating for all new dwellings and those converted through material change of use. The requirements also necessitate that the Rating is displayed in the property upon completion.

The regulations were amended in 2006, 2010 and 2014 (2013) with the introduction of Approved Document L1/2A for New Build and L1/2B for Existing Buildings including Extensions and Change of Use Buildings.
