Building Regulations

Building Regulations set the standards for the design and construction of buildings, to ensure the safety and health of people that use them. They also include requirements for fuel or power to be conserved, and facilities for people (including those with disabilities).

If you are a property owner, it is important to ensure that all work carried out on your development complies with Building Regulations standards. Building Regulations approval is required for most building work in the UK, and this may include new builds, loft conversions, extensions, alterations and residential conversions.

Local Authority Building Control Partner Authority SchemeGet Planning and Arcghitecure recommends a full set of plans with the application, in order to ensure you get a certificate of compliance for Building Regulations prior to commencing construction work. Our team have successfully completed hundreds of building regulations applications across the UK and we are highly experienced in dealing with Local Authority Building Control Departments, as well as private building inspectors.

Our Building Regulations service typically includes:

  • Accepting the brief and reviewing the clients requirements.
  • Visiting the site to undertake a dimensional survey.
  • Assisting with the appointment of other consultants if required (E.g. structural engineer, party wall surveyor
  • Liaising with other consultants as required
  • Drawing up a detailed design package to demonstrate building regulations compliance, including 1:50 layouts, cross sections and explanatory notes.
  • Submission of a draft application to the client for comment
  • Incorporate client comments (as required) and finalise and lodge application to building control officer (BCO)/approved inspector (AL)
  • Respond to any comments by the BCO/AL to comply with requirements of the Building Regulations
