Planning & Legal
Some building work will legally require planning permission, building regulation approval, gas safety certification and electrical safety certification.
Most large building works, or work that affects the exterior appearance of the property or affects the neighbouring property will require planning consent prior to work commencing.
This will involve drawing detailed existing and proposed plans, and sending the plans together with a planning application form to the local authority planning department.
This can be done by the property owner or if preferred we can undertake the role as the property owners agent and deal with all the planning issues.
Building Regulation approval
Once planning consent has been given work cannot commence until building regulation approval has been obtained. This involves sending building regulation plans together with a registration form and the fee to the local authority Building Control Department. This can be done by the property owner or if preferred we can undertake the role as the property owners agent. Once building regulation approval has been obtained the work can commence. A Building Control inspector will then visit the site to inspect and pass the completion of various construction stages. Once all work has been satisfactory completed the Building Control Department will issue a certificate of satisfactory completion which will be needed for any future HIPS package.
Electrical Safety Certification
All electrical work undertaken on any building work will require an electrical safety certificate once completed. This will be required for any future HIPS package.
We can issue an electrical safety certificate for all work we undertake.
Gas Safety Certificate
Work to gas pipes and appliances will require a gas safety certificate to show that the work has been undertaken and inspected by a qualified gas engineer. This will be required for any future HIPS package.
We can issue a gas safety certificate for all work we undertake.
