Building Control Consulting
At Vision we have a vast amount of experience in working with the Building Regulations. We have established excellent working relationships with both Local Authorities and Approved Inspectors, which enables us to assist with all Building Control matters to ensure that all projects are always designed to satisfy all requirements of the Building Regulations.
‘The majority of building projects are required to comply with the Building Regulations, which in turn ensures the health and safety of people in and around all types of buildings, Energy conservation, Access and facilities to buildings and many other specialist areas.
Building Regulations ensure buildings are habitable, safe, dry and warm, when building or making alterations to your property and set the standard for the design and construction of buildings.
Compliance with the Building Regulations is a legal requirement and subsequently one of the most important stages of your project.’
Vision has a wealth of experience in advising on specialist Building Control Matters. As mentioned we work closely with Local Authorities and Approved Inspectors when preparing and submitting Building Control Applications, maintaining positive lines of communication throughout to ensure projects run smoothly and are fully certified for compliance upon completion.
We pride ourselves on providing a responsive and cost-effective service, which means that we can provide early advice to our clients, prior to planning application submissions. Even before planning permission has been granted we are able to attend design team meetings to offer advice and attendance at further meetings to assist the team up to construction on site. We will prepare all the necessary plans and construction specifications required for a building control submission.
