Ensure your building meets the necessary energy performance requirements
New Build Domestic
NZEB requirements should be evaluated during the design of a new build dwelling alongside the production of ‘working drawings’, to ensure the correct insulation, heating and ventilation requirements are meet in accordance with Technical Guidance documents (TGDs) ‘Part F’ & ‘Part L’. As your BER assessor, 360 Energy will carry out a Dwelling Energy Assessment Procedure (DEAP) to demonstrate compliance with TGD Part L while advising on the most cost effect route to compliance taking into account site orientation and landscape, along with your personal preferences in terms of renewable technologies.
Domestic Extensions and Renovations
Within the new regulations there is now a new requirement for “Major Renovations” to meet a “cost optimal” energy performance standard (in ROI this is a minimum BER of B2) insofar as this is “technically, functionally and economically feasible”.
A ‘Major Renovation’ means the renovation of the existing dwelling where more than 25% of the existing thermal elements undergo renovation. The thermal envelope refers to the entire surface area of a building through which it can lose heat to the external environment or the ground, such as the walls, windows, floors and roof.
If your project falls within the major renovation definition, the entire dwelling must either:
Achieve a B2 Building Energy Rating
Implement a package of pre-defined energy performance improvements set out in TGD Part L’s Table 7.
