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

When circumstances require the application of Building Regulations, it’s surely preferential not to take the law into your own hands.  Particular conditions mean rules have to be adhered to so that the work undertaken is not only appropriate on health and safety grounds, but also legitimate.  This is now standard practice in England and Wales but different in Scotland, which has its own particular code.

The following situations require Building Regulations to be taken into account; cavity wall insulation, the creation/extension of a building, work relating to aspects of structure, fire, access and usage, the employment of non-FENSA registered traders (i.e. not authorised by any government accredited scheme) for window installation, alteration/renovation work affecting compliance, foundation underpinning, or a fundamental change of use.

If the job is only related to installing services or fittings such as certain types of drains, fuel burners, replacement windows, showers and toilets, the service provider must be properly registered to certify the work himself.

Guidance or approval may be necessary if the project is likely to be more substantial than this. This is different from planning permission.

By filling out your details on this website you will be able to get in touch with specialists who can dispense the right advice for you, whether they are building surveyors, structural engineers or architects.  All their credentials are available too but it is up to you to check each member as required before hiring their services.

Found the web site very easy to navigate. I followed up with MDesignTech. Stephen was very responsive to our initial contact and has been very helpful in assisting us in putting together the required details for our Building Regs application .
Ray, Woking, Surrey
Promptness of response : Friendly. From call to survey being done was one week,so very prompt. Quality of service : Could make contact by phone or email and response was efficient. Explained that surveyor preferred to do 'buildings survey' on older properties, which was exactly what we hoped for. Value for money : We got quotes from three and although this was the most expensive we felt it offered what we were looking for. Professionalism : Professional but also friendly and able to translate information to us in easily understood way
