What are Building Regulations?

Building Regulations are detailed regulations to ensure that new buildings, conversions, renovations and extensions are going to be safe, healthy and high-performing. So, once planning permission has been issued (or if not required) then in order to carry out the work, where required, building regulation approval has to be put into place for the work to be carried out accordingly.

The building regs cover many areas including structural integrity, fire protection, accessibility, energy performance, acoustic performance, electrical and gas safety. They also lay standards for drains, ventilation, protection against the ingress of water and so on.

Do I need building regulations approval?

Building regulations usually apply if you want to:

  • Put up a new building
  • Extend or alter an existing one
  • Provide services and/or fittings in a building such as washing and sanitary facilities, hot water cylinders, foul water and rainwater drainage, replacement windows, and fuel burning appliances of any type.
