Water Use Efficiency Calculation

Water efficiency is becoming an increasingly important feature of sustainable properties. Building Regulation 36(1) requires a water efficiency calculation for each new build dwelling, as well as some types of dwellings formed by ‘material change of use’. Water efficiency calculations predict the water consumption in line with Part G of the Building Regulations. 

Achieving Part G Compliance

Water efficiency is measured by litres per person per day. To comply with Part G of the Building Regulations, a dwelling’s consumption rate must not exceed the target of 125 litres per person per day set in the Building Regulations. However, some authorities might, and will, set lower targets, so local rules must be consulted to achieve compliance.

To help you achieve compliance, we will provide a template at the design stage to establish flow rate limits for fittings. At the as-built stage, we will carry out the necessary consultations to provide the final calculations and Part G compliance report for Building Control.
