Homeowner Building Regulation Guides
Many householders are confused about how to make their building project comply with Building Regulations. There are two alternative methods Building Notice and Full Plans for which a verification process and inspection is required to be carried out by a Building Control Body usually the Local Authority Building Control ( LABC ) but it can also be a private approved inspector.
A Full Plans submission is the recommended method as construction drawings & details are submitted and formally approved and vetted before construction commences. LABC have produced videos to view on their website explaining the full Building Regulations submission & approval process – see image link.
Plans4 your home can undertake the ‘full plans’ submission process on your behalf for preparation of Building Regulations construction drawings with building notes together with application documents – this will sometimes requires area calculations for glazing energy compliance and lighting details as required by the authorising body. We can also undertake the process for obtaining a Regularisation Certificate where work has previouslybeen carried out but no Building Regulation approval has been obtained.
