Building RegulationsThe Building Regulations set standards of design and construction and apply to most building projects. They ensure buildings are constructed to a minimum standard. There are different ways to approach obtaining Building Regulation Approval. We can guide you through this and compile the information required to comply with the Building Regulations and enable you to legally build your project.
