Building regulations

Once planning permission has been obtained and prior to starting building works, the construction detail drawings are subject to Building Regulation approval by either the Local Authority Building Control Department or an approved Independent Inspector.

Building regulations are a set of requirements laid down by Central Government to ensure that building construction works are carried out to approved standards.

  • The health, safety and welfare of people in and around building
  • The conservation of fuel and energy within buildings
  • Ease of access and facilities for disabled people in public and commercial buildings
  • Fire safety and means of escape from buildings.

They cover a wide range of building works from major office, shop and residential developments to domestic works like extensions - loft conversions, garages.
