When undertaking any build there is always a certain amount of Compliance that you have to adhere to. There are many variations but it will depend on what type of build you're undertaking. To keep ahead of the game you should adhere to the highest of standards to future proof your build. Construction compliance has come a long way in the last few years, especially with the rise in Passivhaus.
Whether you're building from scratch, renovating or extending, you will need to know what it is you have to comply with. Atspace Ltd are one of the leading experts in this area and you will find many of the answers you need on their webpage or just give them a call they will be happy to help.
The main thing you need to know is that Compliances are there for both you and your build. They help provide healthy living as well as safety and, if adhered to fully, they provide you with a build of the highest standard and can even save you money in the long term on your bills.
The Construction industry contributes millions to the UK economy, so think of all those builds. How many are going to last the test of time? How do we ensure that the work we are doing will be there in years to come, not just physically lasting but still seen as some of the best construction around?
Essentially what you need to do is not see the compliance as something you just need to pass to move on to the next stage but something you need to excel in. If you have the best score on your testings (Air, sound, SAP ETC) then these will continue to provide a healthy, eco future, not only for your clients (or yourself) but for the Eco future of the country.
To ensure that you can push forward with your build to the highest standards, you will need to either know the compliance requirements or at least have someone in your corner who does. This knowledge will influence the design of your build from the very beginning. There are many factors which can be enhanced right from the off, even down to the site location. If you leave things to chance then your build will be severely affected.
Don't forget that you will need someone who is accredited to sign off your compliance. For full information take a look at Atspace Ltd, they have been dealing with compliance needs for years and are constantly updating to include all new requirements.
