Building Regulations.

Find out more about this service.



AP Consulting Engineers understand, challenge and value manage often significant construction programme and cost risks to help ensure the successful delivery of your project. Building regulations are minimum standards for design, construction and alterations to virtually every building, and help ensure that new buildings, conversions, renovations and extensions (domestic or commercial) are going to be safe, healthy and high-performing.


The regulations set out:

  • What qualifies as ‘building work’ and so falls under the control of the regulations
  • What types of buildings are exempt (such as temporary buildings)
  • The notification procedures that must be followed when starting, carrying out, and completing building work
  • Requirements for specific aspects of building design and construction



At AP Consulting Engineers we can guide you through the regulatory process, including structural integrity, fire protection, accessibility, energy performance, acoustic performance, protection against falls, electrical and gas safety. The regulations cover new buildings and extensions as well as major alterations to services, underpinnings and some changes of use, such as barn conversions. You also need to take care that any alterations to an existing building don’t make adjacent fabric, services and fittings become less compliant as a result of new works.
