Building Regulations affect both residential and commercial property. They deal with the technical aspect of how a building is constructed. It is often necessary to seek Building Regulation Approval, as well as Planning Permission, as part of an overall scheme for alteration, extension or new build, it may be that building regulation approval is required even if planning Permission is not required for the scheme.
The Local Authority has the duty to ensure that building works and other matters falling within the scope of the Building Regulations are complied with in order to ensure basic standards of health and safety, energy conservation and provision for disabled people etc.
We can produce all necessary drawings, plans, details, specifications and structural calculations that may be required for a Full Plans Submission or deal with the matter as a Building Notice where appropriate. Contravention of the Regulations can result in significant penalties so it is important to ensure that works are properly specified and supervised. We can offer advice on the operation of the Regulations and how to comply with them, liaise with the local authority on your behalf and apply for and gain Building Regulation Approval.
