If you are involved with the construction of new buildings or dwellings in Scotland, you will need to comply with Section 6 of the Building Standards which covers energy in residential and commercial buildings.
Section 6 is split into two 'Technical Handbooks' one for domestic, the other for non-domestic, which are detailed below.
The methods for compliance covered in section 6 will be similar if not the same as other UK Building Regulations. Low carbon and the overall reduction of carbon emissions is factored into all new build projects in Scotland. The standards required for building compliance set by Section 6 may differ to other building regulation documents and are often considered to be quite stringent.
