Building Regulations

The building regulations set minimum standards for the strength of the structure, but also its thermal performance, ifs fire safety, ins internal measurements, its accessibility to disabled people and its drainage capacity. We serve London and surrounding areas.

The government has set out statutory requirements for all buildings in the country. The building regulations set minimum standards for the strength of the structure, but also its thermal performance, ifs fire safety, ins internal measurements, its accessibility to disabled people and its drainage capacity. This is where Summit’s structural engineering services come to the fore.

These regulations were created to ensure that everyone has a safe and healthy environment in which to live and work. Once planning permission is granted for a project, our compliance team will begin making sure that the project meets the requirements of all relevant laws and regulations.

At this stage you should be thinking about:

  • Drainage
  • Fire safety
  • Connections
  • Build over agreement (if applicable)
  • Party wall agreement (if applicable)

At a later stage, we’ll have to address issues like:

  • Electrical plans (covered in the scope of works)
  • Plumbing plans (covered in the scope of works)

Key Building Stages

From planning to completion we will ensure the work we provide runs through all three stages below.

Stage 1 : Building Regulation Design

We’ll have technical drawings made up for your project by one of our expert designers. These will make it possible to prove that the project will comply with drainage, fire safety and other regulations.

Stage 2 : Structural Calculations

Here, we make sure that the design for your project is structurally sound. Our structural engineering services team will apply their materials and construction know-how to the design, and make all the necessary calculations.

Stage 3 : Gaining Building Control

We will pass on your final construction documents to building control to get sign off. We use a private company called JHAI. Once approved you will get a certificate so that you can begin to build!

Worked with the team at Summit for a single story back extension. They worked quickly and kept us up to date throughout the process. These guys are great and we would highly recommend them!

While exploring the idea of a sunroom, my friends offered a few names of companies in London that are reputed for such jobs. After talking to a few, I came across Summit and contacted them. I don't remember whom I spoke to, but the person understood what I was looking for and explained everything to me in very simple terms. I liked their professionalism and in the manner they responded to my queries. I hope to get Summit's services and would recommend the same to others.

Great working with Eleni & the team. Really pleased with the drawing designs and the advice offered regarding the local authority planning permission. Looking forward to the rest of the process and hopefully starting the build soon!

After looking for someone to do our kitchen extension plans, we found Summit by using Google and found they had good reviews, similar to what we were after. After our initial call with Oliver, we had a site visit, then decided to go with them as they were just right for our budget. At all stages throughout the process, we didn't have any issues. We just needed them to get us to planning, but in the end decided to go for the Building Regulations + Structural package too. Looking to build in April, can't wait!
