It is a legal requirement to have Building Regulations approval when building a property for human habitation. Our Building Regulations Approval package includes the full construction drawings required to submit to your Building Control body for approval and sufficient for a competent builder to undertake your project. For each drawing, we will send A1 paper copies (A3 for garage plans) and a PDF version if preferred.

Our Building Regulations Approval Service helps self-builders and developers to get approval quickly and cost-effectively.

Before beginning your building project, you must obtain the Building Standards Approval, which is necessary for all build projects. Our team of designers will take care of the building and design requirements once you have received planning approval, and we can also communicate with other specialists, such as a structural engineer, and the option to submit and manage the application to the local government on your behalf.

For self-builders, we often advise a full planning application, which is part of our service. If granted, this thorough application will advice that you meet the necessary safety requirements to construct your home.
