Starting the building regulation process with Potton
Once you have received planning permission our team of architectural technicians will take care of the building regulations and engineering requirements. Including submission of documents to the planning officer and if needed resolving any questions or queries.
We usually recommend a full plan application for all our self-builders, which is included as part of our service. This is a detailed application and once approved, you will meet the level of safety standards to build your home.
What's included in the Full Plan Application?
- Comprehensive working drawing pack, which includes: planning drawings, site location plan, block plan, drainage design, technical drawings of the property, including walls, floors and roof
- Construction details
- Structural calculations, foundation and superstructure
- Energy calculations
- SAP calculations
When do I find out if the project can go ahead?
Our service, includes coordinating with the building inspector to answer any further questions. Often there are details to be checked and answered for each individual project. Our experienced team are here to help give further clarification when needed, to complete this stage of your self build.
