Building Regulations Once Planning Permission is in place, we submit the Building Regulations documents for Approval.

These specify the nuts and bolts of the scheme and will involve the structural engineer, heat loss consultant, possibly a heating engineer, etc. Tender and Construction We then prepare comprehensive documents for the Tender process which set out all the items you wish included in the builder’s price, e.g. bathroom and kitchen fittings, landscaping, flooring and doors. We assist you with your chosen route for obtaining prices from builders and advise on setting up a Form of Contract suited to your project.

The Contract should include the overall timing, price, and a payment schedule for the works. During construction we are available to support your contract with the builder, usually on an ‘as needed’ basis. However, this stage may be more formal, depending upon our Agreement.

Consideration is now given to a ‘Designer’s Risk Assessment’ for Health and Safety, ensuring your ‘duties’ under the legislation are explained. The Planning authority is likely to impose Conditions on your approval, which we deal with so works on site can begin.
