Building Warrant Paisley

Like most other areas in Scotland, Paisley is a big town that is constantly growing and improving constantly. If you have an office or even a house in Paisley then you may want to continue to go and improve with the town. In order to do work on your building then you have to have a building warrant although this may sound like a daunting thought it is actually very simple and here at Archiplan, we can help you through the process of getting a building warrant.

Firstly, you would need to go to your local council, which would be the Renfrewshire Council if you lived in the Paisley area. You will need to also fill out application forms along with drawings of your building plans. At Archiplan we can sort out your application forms for you as well as giving you a full-scale drawing of your proposed plans and also a full-scale drawing of your existing building.

Once you have submitted your application forms as well as your drawings the process should take between around 4 and 6 weeks for the council to come back and tell you whether you have been granted a building warrant or not. Throughout the process, we will be in contact with the council and will provide you with regular updates as soon as we receive them.

Once your building warrant has been approved the council will be in contact and provide you with the next steps to take. They will provide you with your Construction Compliance and Notification Plan. The Construction Compliance and Notification Plan will then inform you when to contact your local Building Standards as your work will need to be inspected as various stages throughout your process.

From the get-go, our highly experienced team at  Archiplan will be working on behalf of you, liaising with your local council to get the process of granting you a building warrant done as quickly and efficiently as possible to enable you to begin with your improvements to your building.

If you are in the Paisley area and would like to find out more or would like to book an appointment to speak to one of our team then please do not hesitate to get in contact.
