Although not all building projects require planning permission, most, however, will require building regulations consent.
Greenward Associates provide detailed and accurate drawings for residential, commercial and industrial properties.
We are happy to submit:
• full plans building regulations applications
• regularisation (retrospective) building regulations applications
• building notices
Within the building regulations drawings are included the building fabric, construction notes, section details, drainage layouts and when necessary electrical layouts.
These drawings are comprehensive enough for the contractor to use to actually build, extend/alter your property.
In some circumstances as part of the building regulations application process, SAP’s (Standard Assessment Procedure - to assess the energy rate of the building), EPC’s (Energy Performance Certificate - which confirms the energy performance rating) and water efficiency calculations may be necessary and which we can provide in-house.
Structural engineer’s details and calculations and SBEM’s calculations (Simplified Building Energy Model - which are energy efficiency calculations for commercial and industrial premises) may also be required and in this regard we work closely with a number of companies that offer these services and who will be happy to provide a competitive quotation.
Failure to obtain statutory approval for the relevant work being carried out will in the long run be more costly and cause more inconvenience than obtaining consent prior to works commencing.
