Extension Building Regulations
In most cases, it will be necessary when extending a building to ensure that everything done complies with the Government's Building Regulations. Unless the planned extension is a porch, conservatory or detached garage built at ground level, taking up less than 30m2 of floor space, it's likely that Building Regulations will be relevant.
Adept Home Improvements will be able to help you in ensuring that your extension meets all the Building Regulations that may apply to the work, and in making sure that any inspections required are completed and work meets the construction and performance standards set by the regulations.
How to comply
Building Regulations approval is a separate process from obtaining planning permission for your extension, and it is extremely important to ensure that your extension is approved in both regards. To achieve compliance with Building Regulations, Adept Home Improvements will submit full and detailed plans of the proposed extension, together with the appropriate application forms to the Local Planning Authority.
Building control surveyors will examine the plans to guarantee that they accord with Building Regulations, and will approve the project. Adept Home Improvements will notify the council when building work commences and at various stages throughout the project, and inspections can be made to ensure that work, such as laying foundations, damp proofing and installing drains is carried out to standard. A final inspection will be made upon completion of the extension, and a notice of acceptance of completion certificate will be issued when everything is up to scratch.
