Building regulations are an essential part of almost any building project, whether it’s your own home extension, a self-build new home, or a giant commercial office development.

When it comes to designing your extension, drawing up detailed building regulations plans are a key part of ensuring that your project is suitably compliant and that your application for building regulations approval will be successful.
