Gaining an understanding of the UK Building Regulations is vitally important when considering a building development project – for new builds, extensions and conversions. They are a key stage in the build process and, without a Building Control Approval or submission, works cannot start on site.
Complying with these regulations is essential to the success of any design project. It’s crucial to understand what the building regulations entail and more importantly, how they affect the build process, the programme and the build costs of any residential or development project.
The building regulations now also need to be considered at the planning stage. Gaining planning permission approval is dependent on us proving to the Local Authority that a proposed building can be developed into a Building Control Compliant and deliverable solution.
Here at ATSPACE we recognise that gaining an understanding of the Building Regulations and the terminology used can often appear to be somewhat confusing. Therefore, throughout our website you will find answers to many questions – see our knowledge base for FAQ’s, downloads and checklists.
To help you on your way, we have listed below the most commonly asked questions that we encounter with regard to the Building Regulations.
