I plan to do a simple loft conversion. Its a 50,s semi detached bungalow and structure wise I dont see a problem but I think I will need energy efficiency calcs for our local council (North Ayrshire, Scotland). :?
Does anyone on here have any good links to learning how to go about these. I had hoped to use 100mm Kingspan but worried about the cold bridge on the rafters.
I want to do my own drawings as I have experience of drawings being a construction engineer but this stuff is new to me.
Its not likely that you will need thermal calculations for a loft conversion unless you are planning a considerable amount of glazing .
Have a look at my website plan2extend.co.uk - navigate to the portfolio section and there is about 5 loft conversions there together with the project plans, you may be able to print them off to give you an idea of the information required to obtain Building Regulation Approval.
