A Building Regulations are a legal set of requirements throughout England and Wales under which all building work must be conducted. Your local Building Control Department is responsible for ensuring that the highest standards are met and maintained, and any work we complete is carried out in accordance with the latest regulations. For example: health and safety, insulation and environmental issues.
A Without question. An extension which has not been completed in accordance with Building Regulations is technically illegal and your Local Authority could enforce the reversal of any work which has been carried out.
A We deal with all elements of Building Control Notice applications on your behalf. The fee payable to the Building Control Authority is inclusive within our quotation.
A We will submit the relevant paperwork including any drawings to your Local Authority. We will arrange for the Building Inspector to meet with us at various stages throughout the duration of your conversion to inspect our work. You will be issued with a “Final Completion Certificate” which is for you to retain with your property documents. This is your proof that your building work meets with current legislative requirements, and will be required by your solicitor if you decide to sell your property at a later date.
A We can take responsibility for all aspects of the planning process for you, including completing your application, drawing up plans and liaising with the planning department throughout.
A Part P is a relatively new standard, which relates to any new electrical work carried out in your home to ensure that it meets the criteria set by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NIC EIC). All of the electrical requirements involved in any work we carry out for you will only be done by a fully qualified and registered electrician, and the Safety Certificate will be passed to you which should be kept safely with your Completion Certificate.
A Yes we are fully insured to cover works at your property (Public Liability Insurance), and also to cover our workforce (Employers Liability & Contractor All Risks Insurance). We are happy to provide copies on request for your peace of mind.
