JPA Designer is the software of choice for the accreditation organisations below and all use JPA Designer in their training courses.
We are pleased to announce the JPA Designer SAP 2012 (9.92) module has been approved by BRE for compliance calculations to section 6 of the Scottish Building Standards 2015. Follow the link below to see the BRE approved software listing.
The SAP 2012 module in JPA Designer 6.03a1 should be used for warrant submissions after 1 October 2015 (submissions made before then should still be made using SAP 2009 (9.90)).
The SAP 2012 module should also be used for compliance calculations and EPC lodgements in England and in Wales. (Users in Nothern Ireland should continue to use SAP 2009 (9.90) for new buildings).
Technical Note 2014/01 gives a brief overview of the new SAP 2012, while Technical Note 2014/3 summarises other recent changes to JPA Designer.
