If you are considering making structural changes to your home, it is a legal requirement to enlist the services of Building Control
Do building regulations apply to my project?
As there are comprehensive building regulations and legislation surrounding making alterations to your property, we understand that these may seem daunting. However, there are simple ways to understand whether your project should be assessed by a Building Control Inspector.
The gov.uk website states that those who are carrying out the following works on their property will be required to gain compliance against building regulations:
- The erection or extension of a building
- The installation or extension of a service or fitting which is controlled under the regulations
- An alteration project involving work which will temporarily or permanently affect the ongoing compliance of the building, service or fitting with the requirements relating to structure, fire, or access to and use of buildings
- The insertion of insulation into a cavity wall
- The underpinning of the foundations of a building
- Work affecting the thermal elements, energy status or energy performance of a building.
If you are unsure whether your project is required to meet building regulations, do not hesitate to speak to one of our Building Control Approved Inspectors. For our residential building control projects, we mainly work within the North West of England, please contact our office for projects in other areas as we are also able to travel throughout England and Wales.
