The 2007 edition to Section 6: Energy represents a major change in approach to controlling energy usage in dwellings. Much of the change has been driven by the need to comply with the requirements of the EU Energy Performance Buildings Directive (EPBD) and brings Scotland's requirements broadly into line with England and Wales and Northern Ireland.
This Construction Briefing summarises the changes to the energy requirements as described by Section 6 of the Scottish Building Regulations, and explains their wider implications on the construction industry.
This sheet also explains the procedures which have been put in place to help ease the transition to the new set of regulations.
