Approved Document L sets out the standards in England for the energy performance of new and existing buildings. There are four parts to Approved Document L:
The ROCKWOOL guide to the Part L 2013 edition, provides a comprehensive overview of the changes, including typical constructions and U-Values using ROCKWOOL insulation products. The solutions offered will assist the end user to meet or exceed the building fabric performance levels required by the Part L 2013 documents (England).
Technical Handbook (Domestic) and Technical Handbook (Non-Domestic) - The intention of Section 6 is to ensure that effective measures for the conservation of fuel and power are incorporated in dwellings and buildings. In addition to limiting energy demand, a carbon dioxide emissions standard obliges a designer of new dwellings and buildings to consider building design in a holistic way. Although the focus is primarily on lowering carbon dioxide emissions from dwellings in use, the measures within this section are intended to reduce energy demand and minimise the costs arising from the use of energy and fuel.
Approved Document L sets out the standards in Wales for the energy performance of new and existing buildings. There are four parts to Approved Document L:
Approved Document L1A: New dwellings
Approved Document L1B: Existing dwellings
Approved Document L2A: New buildings other than dwellings
Approved Document L2B: Existing buildings other than dwellings
Technical Guidance Document L aims to limit the use of fossil fuel energy and related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions arising from the operation of buildings, while ensuring that occupants can achieve adequate levels of lighting and thermal comfort. Buildings should be designed and constructed to achieve this aim as far as is practicable.
Part F sets out the requirements for conservation of fuel and power in buildings.
The Part F 2012 Revised Building Regulations introduced tougher standards for the carbon performance of new buildings – with an aim to reduce carbon emissions by 25% over the previous standard.
