Extensions and Renovations of Domestic Properties

When an existing property is extended or renovated, Building Control often require proof the new elements achieve compliance with a set of quality standards. Most extensions and renovations meet these standards through a moderate level of insulation in the floors, ceilings and walls, and through energy efficient windows and doors. However, highly-glazed extensions may not meet these set of standards because of the heat lost through large areas of windows or doors. Where this is the case highly-glazed extensions can offset this by improving other new elements or renovating the existing property.

We carry out a quick assessment of the property and provide a report which contains all evidence needed to show overall compliance.
