    Details

    This one day course on Section 6 of the 2010 Building Regulations, which are due to come into force on 1st October 2010, will offer an insight into how the new requirements will affect the compliance methodology.

    Section 6 of the Building Regulations covering Energy has been revised and will come into force in October of this year. The supporting Approved Documents and Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP 2009) have been changed to reflect this revision.

    This revision is in response to the European EPBD (Energy Performance in Buildings Directive) and the Government's ambition for zero carbon new non-domestic buildings by 2019.  To achieve this target the Government has set in place Building Regulation changes requiring a 30% improvement in energy/carbon performance (relative to current 2007 standards) for both domestic and non-domestic buildings in 2010, with a trajectory aimed at further improvements planned for 2013.

    These important revisions and key targets will make compliance more challenging and therefore BRE Training is pleased to offer a new course to help you to understand how these changes will affect you, and to become familiar with the new version of SAP. This course is specifically aimed at the requirements for domestic buildings.
