Building regulations are entirely separate from Planning Permission. Bretway Designs produce all the building regulations drawings, specifications and structural calculations required. We can act as your agent and submit the application to Building Control and liaise with them to gain the required Building Control approval. All 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 most developments; you will need building regulations approval. Building regulations standards are applied and enforced through the Building Control system and are supported by technical guidance documents.
