Step-by-step self-build compliance

Stroma’s New Build Compliance Pack is a complete and fixed price solution to meet Part L, F and G of the Building Regulations:

SAP Assessment

  • Part L1A of the Building Regulations states that a SAP Assessment must be completed and submitted for New Residential buildings before works start on site. SAP Calculations determine the CO2 emission levels and typical energy costs for domestic properties - including space, water heating, and lighting

EPC Certification

  • The Energy Performance Certificate explains your property’s energy usage and typical energy costs. Every property needs an EPC. Our Energy team issue as-built SAPs and EPCs within 48 hours of a successful Air Test

Air Test

  • Air Permeability testing is a requirement under Building Regulations Part L. An air tight property brings benefits such as reduced heating costs, lower carbon emissions and a more comfortable home. Final testing takes place towards the end of the project and our engineers will conduct this with minimal disruption to site activities

Advice from a professional

Building Control sets a minimum standard for building, changing or amending a building. To get Building Regulations Approval for your project, whether it is a self-build house or a renovation project, you will need to get a Building Control Surveyor to sign off the works. Building Regulations Approval is not the same as Planning Approval - to complete your project you may need BOTH.

Initial Notice Application

  • Submit this at least 5 days before works start on site to avoid any undue delays

Plan Check

  • A full check of all drawings and structural calculations during design

Site Inspections

  • Meeting with you on site throughout the project to check progress

Final Certificate

  • Within 8 weeks of completion we’ll check and sign off the final project
