The Building Regulations – this is a statutory instrument which sets out the minimum performance standards for the design and construction of buildings and where applicable to the extension of buildings. The regulations are supported by other documents which generally give guidance on how to achieve the required performance standards.
Detailed drawings including itemised notes and specifications on how the building is to be built are required. These drawings must identify the materials to be used and detail the construction’s compliance with all relevant Building Regulations and any other statutory requirements (health and safety, disabled access etc.). This information then needs to satisfy the local authority building control department which deals with the Building Regulations.
Depending on the nature of the works,
DEAN PARKMAN architecture recommends that a sufficient set of construction drawings will include; a title sheet, floor plans, roof plan, exterior elevations, 3D axonometric views, building sections, wall sections & details, electrical plans, foundation plans and detailed specifications etc.
Therefore, Building Regulations drawings are generally far more detailed than the drawings and design information required for planning approval.
Upon approval of the construction drawings from the local Building Control Department, the Building Control Officer will visit the site at key stages in the construction process for inspections to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations.
Below are some examples of our working drawings based upon this design:-
