Understanding the Gap
Conventional compliance methods often overlook critical energy factors such as lifts and catering facilities, resulting in significant variations in energy consumption, and hindering true efficiency. Sustainable development demands a deep understanding of real-world energy performance.
While Part L calculations and EPCs provide insights, there’s an acknowledged “performance gap” between design intent and actual usage. TM54’s mission is to bridge this gap using dynamic simulation modelling. It comprehends energy complexities, fluctuations over time, and the interplay between building elements.
The Focus 360 Energy Difference
Our TM54 service is led by high-quality assessors, accredited by the schemes Elmhurst Energy & ECMK. We bring a comprehensive, no-hassle approach to your project:
We engage your design team in early-stage energy workshops, understanding targets, benchmarks, and operational expectations. We complete a risk assessment for sensitivity and scenario modelling.
Our experts conduct preliminary energy estimations for your design, considering on-site renewable energy potential. Dynamic Simulation Modeling (DSM) is executed using IESVE software, ensuring precise energy estimations compared to steady-state calculations. All modelling aligns with CIBSE AM11 Building Performance Modeling standards, with rigorous internal auditing.
We use our findings to shape and refine energy targets, ensuring that your designs are on track for success or identifying areas that require further adjustments.
We create Be Seen proformas for London Plan submission (for GLA developments) and contribute to Energy Strategy and Whole Lifecycle Carbon Assessment.
We revisit TM54 at the post-construction stage to ensure that the as-built specification aligns seamlessly with your initial design intent.

TM54’s Robust Solution
TM54, a CIBSE innovation, offers meticulous guidance for designers and property owners. Tailored Part L models estimate both regulated and unregulated energy loads with precision. It envelops essential components like lighting, HVAC systems, lifts, escalators, small power loads, catering facilities, server rooms, and more. It stands as a foundational tool for accurate operational energy assessment during the design phase, ensuring buildings perform as intended.
Closing the Gap
Our TM54 expertise empowers teams to predict energy performance with precision. By utilising Dynamic Simulation Modelling tools and a consultative approach, we enrich your project with the highest value. We facilitate a profound understanding of energy behaviour, enabling you to create more efficient buildings.
Why TM54 Matters
In an era marked by the climate crisis, there’s an escalating demand for buildings that are not just efficient but environmentally responsible. Design teams require dependable tools for modelling in-use energy performance and making informed choices. TM54 acts as a compass guiding you towards energy efficiency, helping you meet and even exceed compliance requirements.
The TM54 methodology employs dynamic analysis, scrutinising all facets of a building’s energy consumption, from regulated to often-overlooked unregulated sources. It’s a potent tool that secures planning approvals, benchmarks energy consumption, and aligns with ESG standards. It helps you build structures that not only perform as designed but flourish in the realm of energy efficiency.
Meeting London’s Standards
The Greater London Authority (GLA) mandates TM54 analysis as part of the London Plan’s energy hierarchy. It contributes to an associated Energy Strategy and Whole Lifecycle Carbon Assessment, a crucial step towards a greener, more efficient capital. London is a great example of what we can expect to see roll out across more local authorities outside of the capital.
