The type of Approval you will need will depend on what and where the building is. If your project is commercial or residential you may require Building Regulation Approval. If your development is a railway or airport project you should refer to Compliance Engineering.

The Building Regulations are made under powers set out in the Building Act 1984, and apply in England and Wales. Nearly all ‘building works’ are required to comply with some or all them. The Building Regulations set out the requirements for minimum technical performance levels in health and safety, fire safety, building access and energy conservation.

When do the Building Regulations apply?

The following types of “building work” are identified within the Building Regulations and require Building Regulation Approvals:-

  1. the erection or extension of a building
  2. the provision or extension of a controlled service or fitting in or in connection with a building
  3. the material alteration of a building, or a controlled service or fitting
  4. work required by regulation 6 (requirements relating to material change of use)
  5. the insertion of insulating material into the cavity wall of a building
  6. work involving the underpinning of a building
  7. work undertaken that changes the building energy status, walls, etc, ‘U’ values and consequential improvements
