DEAP Compliance Check

A higher level of detail is now required when building your dream home to current A Rated Building Standards (2011 Regulations). 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. 

It is important that the Builder fully understands the extra work that is now involved in building an A3-rated home.


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.
