Architectural Services produce all the building regulations drawings, specifications and structural calculations (via 3rd party Engineers) required to obtain Building Control approval.

We will act as your agent and submit the application to Building Control and liaise with them to gain approval.

Most extensions, conversions and structural alterations require building regulations approval for the work you are carrying out. Building regulations promote standards for most aspects of a building's construction, energy efficiency in buildings, the needs of all people, including those with disabilities, in accessing and moving around buildings. They are separate from planning permission and for some developments you may need planning permission and building regulations approval.
