Build to Plans can check with your local planning authority whether you need building regulations approval and we can handle the whole submission and approval process.

Building Regulations are designed to ensure safe building practices and good workmanship. The standards cover many aspects of the building including foundations, wall and roof structures, floor construction, drainage, plumbing and heating, electrical works, thermal insulation, glazing and ventilation, staircases, disabled access etc..

We can provide all the building regulations drawings and specifications required to obtain Building Control approval. We will act as your agent and submit the application to Building Control and liaise with them to gain approval.
