Our building control services
Our team can assist you in making sure that your new development adheres to building regulations and procures building control approval at every step of your project. Our building control services include:
- Creating project plans that adhere to building regulations.
Our architectural designers have comprehensive knowledge of building control. We will ensure that building regulations are considered and adhered to when creating all architectural plans and drawings for your new domestic development.
- Making and submitting building control applications.
Before construction work can begin, you will usually be required to get building control approval from your local council. Filling out the application can be complicated and time-consuming, and it’s important to get the details right to avoid having to resubmit as applications can take a long time to be processed. Our team are happy to help with building control applications to ensure that they are submitted correctly to reduce process time.
- Arranging building control inspections.
Once you have received planning permission and/or building regulations approval and work has commenced, you are required to have the construction work inspected by a local council-approved inspector to ensure that it adheres with the permissions you have been granted. Our team will be happy to arrange all the inspections required for you.
What is building control?
Building control refers to the process of ensuring that all construction work and buildings adhere to the government’s building regulations.
Building regulations set out minimum standards for the design, construction and alterations of all new buildings. They are in place to ensure that all new building projects are safe and of high quality.
Building regulations cover wide a variety of areas including:
- Fire protection
- Energy performance
- Acoustic performance
- Electrical and gas safety
Failure to adhere to building regulations can result in fines and even prosecution. Non-compliant building work may be unsafe, and you will be required to get it fixed to bring it up to minimum building control standards.
Seeking help from experts, like our team here at MDAAS, will ensure that your building is safe, and the design and construction are of a high standard.
