What is an Overheating Assessment?
The new Building Regulations Part O 2021 Edition is the first of its kind. It will tackle overheating in new residential type buildings.
The overarching goal of Part O is to encourage the design and construction of buildings that limit unwanted solar gain during the summer months, and provide occupants with adequate means of removing excess heat from indoor environments.
It is important to note the measures themselves are not designed to guarantee the comfort of building occupants but to protect an occupant’s health/welfare.
Part O is demonstrated if either of the following methods are used:
- Simplified Method for limiting solar gains and means of removing heating
- Dynamic Thermal Modelling
How quickly can I have my Overheating Assessment report?
It depends on the size of your property however, on average it takes about 3-5 days to arrange an appointment. We will require a full set of plans and window schedule to start the process.
