SBEM Calculations (L2A)
All new non-residential buildings must comply with Part L2A of the Building Regulations; the Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) is an approved method for undertaking Part L2A compliance calculations.
Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM) calculates the energy used and
CO2emissions generated by a building, through the modelling of the
building’s features, including:
• Building Geometry, location and orientation
• Thermal Performance (U-values, air tightness)
• Building Services (HVAC)
SBEM calculations are required for all newly built non-domestic units with a heated or cooled environment and an internal floor area greater than 50m2 to ensure they will meet the requirements of Part L2A of the Building Regulations.
