Building Regulations Approval
Now that you have been granted planning permission approval the next stage we need to address before moving onto the construction of your project is gaining building regulations approval.
What is Building Regulation Stage
Building regulations are in place to ensure that new or altered structures are safe for the people who will be using them and that they meet certain energy efficiency standards in addition to other criteria. The regulations cover the technical aspects of the project it looks at structures, fire and safety, insulation, sound proofing, drainage and much more.
For the majority of extension or loft conversion projects building regulation approval will be required in addition to planning permission. There are some total or partial exemptions to the requirement for approval.
In order to apply for building regulations approval we will need to complete detailed technical drawings of the new plans. These are required to demonstrate that all the specified standards will be met.
