Building Regulations Services

Why choose Andrews Eades for your Building Regulations Services?

Building Regulations are the minimum standards for design and construction which are applied to virtually every building project in the UK. The regulations are set out in a series of written documents called the Approved Documents, which are produced by the UK Government.

Our experienced team of architects and chartered surveyors are highly skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of Building Regulations, allowing us to produce a full suite of technical drawings for any project. These drawings are then submitted in an application to either the Local Authority Building Control or a Private Approved Inspector for their comment and approval.

Whilst Building Regulations drawings do not constitute a full specification of works, they are of a sufficient enough level of technical detail that they will form a crucial part of the information from which your chosen contractor will build from. Typically, this includes elements like foundations, superstructure (floor, walls, roofs), beams and lintels, insulation, ventilation, drainage, and fire protection.

  • Full Building Regulations Application Services.
  • Expert knowledge and understanding of the Approved Documents.
  • Experienced working with Local Authority Building Control and Private Approved Inspectors.
  • Skilled design and drawing production using CAD.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers about our Architectural Services.

To read our full list of frequently asked questions, please click here.

Do I need permission?2023-10-05T13:52:12+01:00

Most proposed building work is subject to compliance with planning policy, however whether you must formally apply for planning consent is dependent on the nature of the work you intend to undertake and the type of property you own.

More minor extensions and alterations may be undertaken without the need to formally apply for planning consent if they meet Permitted Development criteria.

Andrews Eades will be able to advise you whether your project meets Permitted Development criteria, and if not, which type of planning application is required to apply for consent.

What is the difference between planning permission and building regulations?2023-08-24T14:42:41+01:00

Planning consent is a permission to carry out development works. Planning drawings tend to deal with the layout size and appearance of the building.

Building regulations consent is related to the stability of the works, its thermal efficiency and wellbeing of the users/ occupiers.

When do I need planning permission?2023-08-24T14:42:18+01:00

Planning consent depends upon the nature and size of extension, listed status, conservation areas etc.

We would be please to advise on the likely need for consent. Please contact us for more information.

Am I responsible for health and safety on my project?2023-08-24T14:41:06+01:00

A domestic client is responsible for ensuring that they have an appropriately skilled project team in place, who then takes on the principal roles for managing health and safety under CDM 2015. The client must also ensure that their project programme allows enough time for health and safety to be properly managed.

The level of health and safety planning and management should be proportional to the size and complexity of the project.
