Dwellings in the United Kingdom face a growing threat of overheating, a challenge exacerbated by the effects of climate change. This issue has profound implications for the well-being and health of inhabitants.
Part O of the Building Regulations took effect in June 2022, with the intention to limit solar gain and provide means to remove excess heat from indoor environments. Approved document Part O 2021 mandates that rooms in a dwelling are evaluated in isolation instead of the previously used dwelling average.
Anyone building a house, planning an extension, or converting their home needs to check both the design and materials used aren’t going to cause energy efficiency problems for the property.

Why work with us?
Our sustainability consultants have extensive experience in meeting regulatory requirements, yet work hard to go beyond mere compliance with the building regulations.
We pride ourselves on delivering decarbonisation advice to help our clients build lower carbon, energy-efficient properties.
We reduce the amount of assumed data in each calculation to the bare minimum, meaning that our overglazing calculations are as accurate as possible.
Conversations with clients are key to this process and our work improves each time we work on a new project, thanks to the collaborative approach we adopt with our clients.
Our office-based staff work hard to book all appointments as quickly as the delivery schedule allows.
We work on a two-week schedule, with the vast majority of overheating calculations being delivered well within that window.
Our rate card prices for all services are reviewed regularly, so we’re confident that you won’t find a better service for a better price anywhere else. If you think you’ve found one, we’ll either beat or match it.
Navigating the complexity of energy efficiency, decarbonisation, and building regulation updates isn’t easy.
We’ve worked hard to explain a range of topics related to building compliance in plain English to help non-experts get the information they need.
