A bit about us

BRUKL Assessment Image

Is your building new, about to be built or in design/planning stage? Is the internal floor area greater than  50m2 and/or an extension on an existing building with a floor area greater than 25% the size of the existing building?

If the above is true you will require SBEM Calculations (also knows as BRUKL reports) at both design and completion stage to enable a Building Control Authority (e.g. the local planning department in your Council) to sign off your project. SBEM calcs are required at both DESIGN stage and AS BUILT (completion) stage and if the building is to be leased or sold upon completion, you will also require a Commercial EPC.

Only LEVEL 4 qualified assessors are legally permitted to provide SBEM calculations/Commercial EPCs.

Prices start at £200 PLUS VAT

Building control were asking for an SBEM report and an on-construction EPC. The building was finished but not fitted out and the tenant was due in five days. Certificates took 12 hours, BC signed off and the tenant was in on schedule. Thanks again!
