Yes IES are fully committed to maintaining an interface in VE for all UK Building Regulations and we are working on both SBEM and ApacheSim DSM routes for Scotland Section 6 2015. Below is a statement covering the current status and plan which will be kept live until the final aproved software release.
The Scottish Governments planned revisions to Section 6 (Energy) Non-domestic were due to go live on the 1st October. We received notification on the 30th September that this deadline would not be met as further work was required prior to public release. We expect a public release of the finalised update around the 20th November – to be confirmed.
IES has completed work on all known items, but are awaiting notification of these final, as yet unreleased changes which has impacted our release schedule. The update will be available to all users when the final release of SBEM, EPCgen and BRUKLgen is confirmed and the software is officially approved. It is anticipated that this will now be late December so we'll be in touch as soon as it is ready for download.
In the meantime, an intermediate version of SBEM has been made available to give representative results for Section 6 2015 Compliance simulations. We will release a public beta of the software to give access to these regulations, and will aim to make the first beta available during week commencing Monday 19th October.
Please note, the beta version will be subject to change.
