Building Warrant Glasgow

As a homeowner, you may want to do some work to your house at some point in time. However, before any building work commences, you need to ensure that your development plans are compliant with current building regulations by obtaining a building warrant. If you are without a building warrant before you start building work, you could be fined. Although necessary, obtaining a building warrant for building work can be challenging at times. Archiplan Glasgow can complete your building warrant for your home in Glasgow for you, so you don’t have to stress.

In order to obtain a building warrant, you have to apply to your local council’s building standards department. If you are based in Glasgow, then you will have to apply to Glasgow City Council. The application process can be quite lengthy at times, where you will need to fill out an application form and send copies of your home plans.

At Archiplan Glasgow, we can help to put your application together for you. In the complete application pack that we offer, we can create a full set of existing scale plans, a full set of proposed scale plans, ordnance survey maps and also the council’s application form.

These plans will tell Glasgow City Council’s building services department the location of the building work, what the building work will entail and how it will affect any adjoining or existing buildings. All of the drawings that we produce are in full compliance with the current building regulations.

On average, the entire process takes around 4 to 6 weeks. Once your application has been received, your local council will assess it and decide whether or not it meets the Scottish Building Standards. From the moment we begin your application, we will update you every step of the day.

Once your building warrant has been granted, your local council will tell you what you need to do next and will also provide you with your Construction Compliance and Notification Plan (CCNP). The CCNP will inform you when to contact your local Building Standards department and when you will need inspections at different stages of your building work.

From the onset and throughout, Archiplan Glasgow will be your agent, acting on your behalf for all interactions with your local council. Our team at Archiplan Glasgow are highly trained and experienced. We work hard to make sure that you obtain your building warrant as quickly and efficiently as possible so that you can get your building work underway.
