DEAP Compliance Check

A higher level of detail is now required when building your dream home to A Rated Building Standards. It is important to specify exactly what is required from the start by carrying out a DEAP Compliance Check. This also eliminates any ambiguity when hiring a contractor as everyone is in total agreement as to what is involved from the outset. 

The energy performance levels of each of the following items must be carefully considered;

Orientation:    Fabric Insulation:      Windows & Doors:       Airtightness:     Thermal Bridging:    

Ventilation System:      Heating System & Efficiency:     Controls:      Renewable Energy:  


Building Control now insist that DEAP calculations are included with the commencement notice to ensure the building design is compliant with building regulations.

The Energy Performance Coefficient (EPC) and Carbon Performance Coefficient (CPC) which is calculated using DEAP, must not exceed their maximum permitted values.The homeowner and designer must be aware of this level of detail at commencement notice stage.

"We emailed our preliminary plans to Smart Energy Savings and they promptly carried out a DEAP Compliance Check. They made several changes to the building fabric and recommended heating system variations to allow for compliance. They also produced a Part L Building Specification which we are currently working to. We have just started on the foundations, but if we work to the specifications we are confident in achieving Part L compliance. We will also achieve an A3 Rating. "      ---  Geraldine Thorpe, Co.
