Building Warrants are required for all internal and external alterations to ensure compliance with the Building Standards. A building warrant must be applied for, and granted by the local authority verifier before any building work can commence.
Building Standards ensure that all new or alterations to buildings comply with the Building Regulations which set the national standards for health and safety. The detailed requirements of each Building Regulation are contained in the Technical Handbooks.
Archiplan can compile your complete application pack which consists of a full set of existing scale plans, a full set of proposed scale plans, ordnance survey maps (scale of 1:1250 &1:500) and the council’s application form. Please note that all the drawings produced will be in compliance with the current Building Regulations. This complete package gets submitted to the council and reviewed by the appointed case officer.
The whole process of obtaining a Building Warrant takes on average 4-6 weeks from the point where your application is validated by the council.
