SBEM calcs – Simplified Building Energy Model

SBEM is developed by the Building Research Establishment as a computer program to analysis building energy consumption. It is used for new commercial buildings such as Industrial Warehouse, School, Hotel, Office or even Halls of Residence. Through comparing the designed Building Emission Rate (BER) with an SBEM calculated Target Emission Rate (TER), it shows the compliance with UK Building Regulations Part L.

The initial design stage of SBEM calculation is to verify that the fixed building services (heating, lighting and ventilation) get the minimum standard. After the building is constructed, final adjustment calculation will determine the constructed building is consistent with the BER.
