Building Regulation & Structural Calculations

  • Once approval is received, you are in stage II and we will arrange Building regulations and Structural Calculations Drawings for the commencement of work.
  • Building Regulations drawings are essential to ensure the health and safety of people in and around buildings by providing functional requirements for building design and construction.
  • This drawing covers construction (such matters as structural stability, insulation, fire prevention and public health) and is required for virtually all building work.
  • Building owner, Builders and developers are required by law to obtain local building control authority approval or carrying out construction work under building notice, independent of Planning Permission.
  • We will also advise on any Party Wall that might need to be issued.
