Changes to Part L1a of the Building Regulations

Changes to Part L1a came into effect in April 2014, so it is worth bearing in mind some of the following requirements for new dwellings

  • 6% decrease in the Target Emission Rate (TER)
  • Introduction of Target Fabric Energy Efficiency (TFEE)
  • Introduction of new thermal bridges
  • New dwellings must comply with both TER and TFEE

This will have big implications on insulation levels, air tightness and heating strategies. It will become more difficult to design a building which complies to these standards. It will be extremely difficult to design a compliant dwelling which uses electric panel/storage as the main source of heating.

At Eco-Cert, we have been working on some flagship projects nationwide, which take the Fabric First approach or make use of many new and LZC technologies. We can advise on the advantages and disadvantages of energy strategies including renewable energy sources and Low Carbon Technologies such as Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Thermal (Solar Water Heating), Ground Source Heat Pumps, Air Source Heat Pumps, Wind Turbines,  Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Biomass.


We are well placed to assist you through this period of change as fully insured SAP and SBEM assessors. Please feel free to contact us with any enquires you may have, and we would be happy to discuss your requirements.



For residential projects we also provide the Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) at design stage in case the client wishes to market off plan.
