Code for Sustainable Homes
We undertake an environmental assessment using this method for rating and certifying the performance of new homes.
It is a national standard for use in the design and construction of new homes with a view to encouraging continuous improvement in sustainable home building.
Where Building Regulations apply, compliance is necessary at all times

The Code for Sustainable Homes covers nine categories of sustainable design:

• Energy and CO2 Emissions

• Water

• Materials

• Surface Water Run-off

• Waste

• Pollution

• Heath and Well-being

• Management

• Ecology.

SAP (Energy Ratings)
We undertake the governments Standard Assessment Procedure for the Energy Rating of dwellings. Its purpose if to calculate energy performance and CO2 emissions for dwellings.

The calculation is based on the energy balance taking into account a range of factors that contribute to
energy efficiency:
· materials used for construction of the dwelling
· thermal insulation of the building fabric
· ventilation characteristics of the dwelling and ventilation equipment
· efficiency and control of the heating system(s)
· solar gains through openings of the dwelling
· the fuel used to provide space and water heating, ventilation and lighting
· energy for space cooling, if applicable
· renewable energy technologies

The SAP rating is based on the energy costs associated with space heating, water heating, ventilation and lighting, less cost savings from energy generation technologies. It is adjusted for floor area so that it is essentially independent of dwelling size for a given built form. The SAP rating is expressed on a scale of 1 to 100, the higher the number the lower the running costs.

The Environmental Impact rating is based on the annual CO2 emissions associated with space heating, water heating, ventilation and lighting, less the emissions saved by energy generation technologies. It is adjusted for floor area so that it is essentially independent of dwelling size for a given built form. The Environmental Impact rating is expressed on a scale of 1 to 100, the higher the number the better the standard.

The Dwelling CO2 Emission Rate is a similar indicator to the Environmental Impact rating, which is used for the purposes of compliance with building regulations. It is equal to the annual CO2 emissions per unit floor area for space heating, water heating, ventilation and lighting, less the emissions saved by energy generation technologies, expressed in kg/m²/year.
