Energy professionals and house builders can use Elmhurst's Design SAP 10 Beta to give them an indication of how projects will perform against the proposed standards and whether they will meet compliance. Having access to this key information now will give concerned parties time to effectively plan for the future and avoid large costs..
The Technical stuff
The latest version of Design SAP 10 Beta is based on the SAP 10.1 methodology and includes the following changes;
Elmhurst is one of the only UK energy assessment schemes to release this software, which allows energy professionals with an existing Design SAP licence to stay ahead of the game and preview the upcoming changes. Elmhurst's On Construction Support Team Leader, Jason Hewins, states: "The initial release for Design SAP 10 Beta was well received by our members who are already using it to understand what information they will need from their clients when SAP 10 is introduced into building regulations. It goes without saying that being able to preview these changes within the software is a huge asset to any On Construction assessor or house builder. Those using the software will already be able to see the new data fields required for completion of future SAP assessments".
