The new version of SBEN features easier data entry, simpler ventilation figures and a more accurate database
An updated version of the Part L compliance checking software SBEM has been released.
The software, which is used for checking the carbon emissions of non-dwellings, had been widely criticised for being difficult to use and producing unexpected results.
The new version has undergone a number of modifications:
- The ability to check compliance of buildings in Northern Ireland built to the equivalent of Part L
- Revised default values for thermal bridging
- Simplification of some ventilation definitions
- Easier entry of data applicable to the whole building
- Modifications to the underlying database to improve accuracy.
