Building Regulations - Stephen Hodge

Building regulations represent the minimum standards for all building work carried out in England and Wales. Accessibility, efficiency, health, and safety are all considerable factors in the regulations set out by our government.

What classifies as building work?

  • The erection or extension of a building.
  • Installing windows using a non FENSA registered fitter.
  • The insertion of insulation into a cavity wall.
  • Underpinning the foundations of a building.
  • Converting a building.
  • The installation or extension of a service or fitting that is controlled under the regulations.
  • Any alteration or renovation that will temporarily or permanently affect the ongoing compliance of the building, service or fitting with the requirements relating to structure, fire, or access to and use of buildings.

As Chartered Surveyors, we are able to advise you and any contractors on the building regulations, to ensure that all building work is carried out in line with the government's minimum legal requirements. We will make sure that the building is promoting energy efficiency, accessible for people with disabilities and that health and safety is paramount.

In addition to being building regulation consultants, our knowledge enables us to create architectural designs that have considered building regulations from the beginning. This saves time on a project and therefore costs.

At Stephen Hodge Associates, we will make sure that any project you’re undergoing is completed efficiently and effectively. If you have any questions in regards to building regulations, please get in touch today.
