Part L1B (SAP calculations for a ‘change of use’)

Conversion of office block to 12 apartments, Wokingham

This project involved undertaking the SAP calculations and supplying the Part L1B consultation for the conversion of a 1980s office block into 12 apartments over three floors in the Berkshire town of Wokingham.

An analysis of the existing thermal elements was undertaken to ascertain which, if any, would require thermally upgrading and advice was supplied where this was required to ensure Part L1B compliance.

Similarly, a number of heating options compliant with Part L1B of the Building Regulations were explored before a final decision was made.

EPCs and associated Part L1B paperwork have now been issued for this completed project and there were no major issues that could not be resolved due to the early engagement of the contractor and continued communication with Blewburton Limited.
