Thermal assessment (2nd edition) - PDF
The thermal assessment of window assemblies, curtain walling and non-traditional building envelopes (Second edition)
This document is intended for use by the building design team, building envelope designers and building inspectors. It allows the early estimation of building envelope U-values, details the information required and describes methods for showing compliance of the final building envelope design with the requirements of Parts L-2A and L-2B of the Building Regulations 2010. It is expected that similar provision will be included in the Building Regulations for Scotland and Northern Ireland in due course.
Advice is given on which calculation methods are relevant to different types of construction. These include:
Finally, the document shows how the equivalent U-value of a zone of building envelope may be used as an input into software that models building energy use.
