The Bentley Hevacomp team are very pleased to announce the new release of Bentley Hevacomp. For the record, this officially goes by the name of Bentley Hevacomp V8i (v26) but we're more than happy to call it v26.
There have been a number of changes and fixes in this release. A couple of the more notable being the inclusion of BS-EN 806-3 in the Netsys (pipe sizing) program, which now gives you two methods of specifying loading units for your outlets, and of course, there is the eagerly awaited update to the PartL calculation with the inclusion of the 2013 regulations in Design Database.

I don't know what more we could have done to bring your attention to this?
I have just done a model for Part L & EPC using latest software and realised I cannot use for 2010 calculations. Surely a lot of people will need to do this as a lot of buildings still fall under this calculation? A lot of time wasted and not happy.
Would be nice if this was clear beforehand.
