The above are the terms and conditions for Clients using the website.  For the terms and conditions for members listed on the website please click here.

Building Regulations apply to building work in England & Wales.  They are statutory instruments that seek to ensure that the policies set out in the relevant legislation are carried out.  They ensure the health and safety of people in and around those buildings.  They also include requirements to ensure that fuel and power are conserved and that facilities are provided for people, including those with disabilities, to access and move around inside buildings.  Scotland has its own set of Building Regulations.

The following types of project amount to 'Building Work':

Extending or erecting a building.
Alteration or renovation work that will temporarily or permanently affect the on-going compliance of the building, service or fitting with the requirements relating to structure, fire, or access to and use of buildings.
Installation of replacement windows using a builder or window company not FENSA registered.
Installation or extension of a service or fitting which is controlled under the regulations.
Insertion of insulation into a cavity wall.
Underpinning the foundations of a building.
Changing the building's fundamental use.

If your project consists only of the installation of certain types of services or fittings (e.g. some types of drain, fuel burning appliances, replacement windows, WCs, and showers) and you engage the services of an installer registered with a relevant scheme designated in the Building Regulations (a competent person), that installer may be able to self-certify the work they carry out.  

If the building work you plan to carry out is more involved then you may need to seek Building Regulations guidance and approval from a professional.  Please note that this is a different matter from obtaining planning permission for your work.  By the same token, obtaining the planning permission which your work may require is not the same as taking action to ensure that it complies with the Building Regulations.

Completing  the form above will instantly provide you with a list of experts who can help you.  They will be a mixture of Building Surveyors, Structural Engineers, Architects or other people who are familiar with and experienced in Building Regulations requirements.  In addition to their contact details you will also see details of their qualifications and experience to help you make a choice.  It could be useful to initially phone one or more them to discuss your requirements in general terms.  Before appointing a supplier and placing an order it is wise to ensure for yourself that your chosen supplier has satisfactory qualifications, experience and insurance, to provide the level of service that you require.
