Property Developers are legally required to comply with the quality and regulatory standards established by Building Regulations/Standards in the Approved Documents/Technical Booklets. Unlike planning permission which covers the impact the development will have on the surrounding area, Building Regulations/Standards focus on the actual construction of the building in terms of its structure, the facilities and conservation of energy and resources.
Approval is required for all new builds, extensions and when structural alterations are made to a building.
Full Plans or Building Notice Application
Before construction can begin Property Developers can either provide a Building Notice or Full plans application to a Building Control/Warrant inspector.
A Building Notice means that work can be undertaken without the submission of full plans, however, the responsibility of ensuring full compliance falls completely with the developer. Full Plans applications will provide greater peace of mind for developers as they can progress with construction, with their drawings/plans approved.
Building Regulations/Standards require energy calculations in order to determine the energy performance of a building before it is built (off plans) and also after construction. Energy calculations can determine a building emission rate and also the quality of the building envelope to ensure heat and air is not lost through the building fabric.
More information about these calculations is provided below:
