Why legal help is important
In addition to the legislation outlined in building regulations, there are other regulatory considerations that can affect the way in which buildings are designed and built. Examples of this include fire safety and health and safety legislation and these areas are covered in a number of documents that are additional to the standard set of Guidance documents. Current legislation requires all building projects to satisfy and comply with the Essential Requirements. These primarily deal with health and safety issues i.e. stability and mechanical resistance, safety in case of fire, health and the environment and hygiene, noise protection, safety in use and energy economy and heat retention. It should be noted that there are over 600 standards that have been mandated. Regulations and guidance can also apply to specific types of buildings.
Dealing with breaches of any regulations on a construction scheme can be time-consuming, stressful and expensive. However, a robust knowledge of the law is essential and expert guidance can mitigate any of the issues being addressed.
