Building Notice vs Building Regulations Submission

When it comes to getting approval for your construction project in England and Wales, you have two main options: Full Plans and Building Notice.

Full Plans: Detailed Direction

With Full Plans, you provide the local building control authority with detailed architectural drawings, specifications, and relevant documents. This thorough package gives them a clear picture of your project and helps them check if it meets building regulations.

At Studio FRI, we approach Full Plans with care. We make sure every part of your submission, from drawings to calculations, is spot on. This makes the approval process smoother and gives you confidence that your project meets all the rules.

Once approved, you get a formal notice saying your Full Plans are good to go. This gives you a roadmap to follow, making sure your project stays on track and meets all the rules.

Building Notice: Quick and Simple

On the other hand, Building Notice is a simpler option. Instead of lots of paperwork, you just send a basic notice to the building control authority with the key details of your project and when you plan to start.

This streamlined approach means you can start building sooner after sending your notice. Building control officers will then visit your site during construction to check everything's going according to plan.

At Studio FRI, we recommend Building Notice for certain projects. It's great when you need to move fast and be flexible. We'll help you handle any surprises that come up during construction while making sure you still meet all the rules.
