If you are in the Renfrew area and would like to undergo work on your house then what you would need to get started is a building warrant. Whether this is a loft conversion, garage conversion, home extension, or any other sort of work you cannot do this without a building warrant. Most people do not know this and might not know how to obtain one of these. However, it is relatively simple and here at Archiplan, we can assist you throughout this process.
There are numerous steps involved in obtaining a building warrant and these are:
- Go to your local council which for people in Renfrew would be the Renfrewshire Council.
- Fill out an application form as well as providing drawings of your building plans.
- Send them away and wait 4-6 weeks to hear back from your local council.
At Archiplan we can fill out your application form as well as providing full-scale drawings of your proposed building plans and send them away to your local council for you. This would save you a lot of time and effort and as well as this we would be in constant contact with the council throughout this process providing you with regular updates on whether your application will be approved or if there are any changes needed.
If your application is approved and you receive a building warrant then the council will provide you with a Construction Compliance and Notification Plan. This will tell you at what times you should contact your local Building Standards as your building work will need to be inspected at various times throughout the process.
Our staff at Archiplan will be working tirelessly on your behalf throughout the process liaising with the council to make sure your application for your building warrant is done as effectively and efficiently as possible enabling you to start making improvements to your home.
