On Construction EPC (SAP Reports) For New Build Properties


All newly constructed dwellings require an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate (EPC SAP Report) when first sold or let.  An On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor (SAP Assessor) is an accredited individual who undertakes energy calculations, using the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) software, for newly constructed dwellings. The calculations produce an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate (On Construction EPC or SAP Report).  


For compliance with Building Regulations PART L 2010, an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate (SAP report) is required for all new dwellings together with the ones that have been created through material changes of use involving building work and extensions over certain sizes (consult with your building control authority for this requirement)

What areas do you provide SAP Reports / New Build EPCs?

We work closely with a panel of SAP Energy Assessors and Non-Domestic Energy Assessors who are fully qualified to provide Commercial EPCs, Display Energy Certificates and SAP Reports (On Construction EPCs) throughout the whole of Essex. However, SAP Reports for New Build Properties are usually produced Off-Plan, without need for a site visit

Can you provide a SAP Report for an extension?

No. As our SAP Assessors work remotely, producing On Construction EPC Assessments Off-Plan, they cannot produce SAP Reports for extensions, only new build properties and developments.

How long is an On Construction EPC valid for?

A SAP Report (On Construction EPC) is valid for 10 years, and must be in place for when the property is first marketed for sale or for rent. If the property is re-sold or re-let within this timescale, the SAP Report can still be used. After the initial 10 years, an EPC for existing dwellings will need to be produced for subsequent sales or rentals.

Can I get a quote for a SAP Report over the phone?

No, we cannot quote for a Commercial EPC, Display Energy Certificate or a SAP Report over the phone as we work with many Non Domestic Energy Assessors and SAP Assessors. Your location and requirements will dictate which assessor is instructed and the price they charge. Please complete the quote request form so we can source the most suitable assessor

Our New Build EPCs are provided by third party partners, and as such we cannot provide a quote or advise over the phone.  Please fill in our quote request form and out partners will call you back
