    The single biggest advantage is that we can work within all geographical locations but the Local Authorities generally work within the confines of their own borough. This means by using us you don’t need to go through a different process and different inspectors every time you start a new project.

    By using a tradesman or installer who is self-certified by way of a competent persons scheme. The most common self-certifications are for electrical works (NICEIC), boilers installations (Gas Safe), windows replacement (FENSA) and cavity wall insulation (CIGA). A full list of schemes can be found on the www.gov.uk website.

    All types such as: residential, commercial, mixed use, educational and healthcare. We also work on more niche building types such as rail, infrastructure, listed buildings, and industrial premises. Some buildings are technically exempt such as Railway, MOD and Crown Premises but they tend to comply in any case and ALL BUILDING CONTROL can advise on these as necessary.

    Neither ALL BUILDING CONTROL or any other Approved Inspector can approve works that have already commenced, only the Local Authority can do that. If however the work you have started is merely preparatory, stripping out or ground investigative work then we can help but you cannot start the works being regulated until the Initial Notice is confirmed.

    You will need to make a Regularisation application to the local authority. This will inevitably involve opening-up works and possibly require provision for other items such as structural calculations and services installation certificates. We offer a service where we can assist you in the process.

    Planning Permission rules determine whether you can go ahead with a building project essentially based on Appearance and Use whereas the Building Regulations set technical standards for the design and construction of buildings.

    When you instruct ALL BUILDING CONTROL you are appointing us to act on your behalf. As part of the Building Regulations process ALL BUILDING CONTROL will notify your local authority of your intended building work and you may start work just as soon as this Initial Notice has been accepted, usually by default after 5 working days or sooner should we receive acknowledgment from the local authority before that.

    After submitting the initial notice to the local authority ALL BUILDING CONTROL takes on the responsibility for plan checking and site inspections. Also, a Fire and a Sewer consultation will be undertaken if the job requires it. If your job is satisfactorily completed, we will issue a Final Certificate. A copy will also be issued to the Local Authority. When you come to sell your property a solicitor or estate agent enquiry will reveal the works were regulated and satisfactorily completed.

    Like the planning permission, the Initial Notice will stay active for 3 years once registered however only if works have not started. If the works have started there is no time limit for the works to then be completed. We can issue you a commencement inspection report, as evidence of a start of works within the expiration date of your planning permission.

    “The process of plan checking and subsequent number of site inspections will never guarantee fully compliant buildings but on the whole it ensures a high proportion of building works meets the high standards we have in the UK.
    The Building Regulations are not a substitute for a Clerk of Works and in any case generally concerned with the bigger picture being health and safety in and around buildings. You should have a formal contract with a reputable contractor and in the absence of your own knowledge hire a designer or architect to provide quality construction plans for your contractor to build to – doing none of this and simply choosing a contractor based on the lowest price could mean problems during and even after the building works.”

    “Some kinds of work carried out to a property may not be building work that is controlled by the Building Regulations but may be work covered by the rules about the Party Wall.
    Put simply, the Party Wall is the dividing wall or partition between two properties which is shared by the owners or tenants of each side.
    The Party Wall Act introduced a procedure for dealing with disputes between owners of neighbouring properties.
    There will be some cases where both the Party Wall Act and the Building Regulations will apply to work being carried out.
    You must find out whether work you intend to carry out will be affected by the Party Wall rules.”

    You will need planning permission for certain changes to the use of a property such as changing from a residential use to a business use. However, it is possible to change use between some classes without having to make an application for planning permission.

    “I have recently moved into a three-bedroom house which has had a loft room constructed. Building Regulations Consent was not obtained before doing this work though we are informed that the works conform to the required standards. How do I go about applying for Building Regulations Consent in retrospect? I know that planning permission was not required.
    You will need to contact your local authority Building Control office and apply for a Regularisation Certification for this ‘unauthorised building work’. This could be very disruptive as some of the covered building work may need to be exposed, e.g. to verify the size of a steel beam or the spacing and size of floor joists.”

    Hampers for the Homeless

    The recent global pandemic we have found ourselves enveloped in has changed our daily realities massively and collapsed them into a somewhat stationary life in our dwellings alone. Not all of us have been able to experience the long lockdown months with the luxury of having a roof over our heads and being able to enjoy our newly-found time with our loved ones. Excessive online shopping, daily walks and endless zoom calls have become a new normality for most of us.

    All Building Control has remained working throughout the static, cold winter months, and we’ve seen the sheer amount of people on the streets, in the horrendous cold. The number of homeless on the streets rising is inevitable, but we can still reach out and show them a sense of much-needed support. For that reason, All Building Control has come up with an initiative to make these challenging times somewhat easier for these people in need by giving out hampers to the homeless.

    These hampers will include an assortment of daily necessities such as warm clothes, toiletries and dry food and costs only £20. The hamper will be delivered personally on the way to site visits, stopping for a chat whilst doing so! In association with Night Watch, a charity providing for London’s homeless, we aim to fundraise enough money to put together an abundance of these hampers to reach as many of the homeless as we can! Nightwatch provides London’s homeless with weekly support in the form of food banks supported by local restaurants and businesses, assisting them in taking up vocational training and education and stabilising those that previously may have been homeless in new accommodation, befriending them whilst doing so.

    Nightwatch emphasises the importance of both empowering such people, to give them a big boost of confidence in finding their new path in life but also educating the community about the realities of homelessness. If you decide to appoint us on a project of yours or would like to make a donation towards one of our hampers for the homeless, we will match this and provide two on our part! We encourage you to support us in this opportunity to reach out to the least fortunate of our communities and revive the sense of belonging that may have been diminished by the continuing pandemic!

    Don’t forget the Approved Document R

    Document

    Publication title: Approved Document R – Physical infrastructure for high speed electronic communications networks

    Date published: April 2016

    Date it takes effect: 1st of January 2017

    Due to the huge rise in use of the internet and broadband in almost all aspects of daily life today, the new Approved Document R took effect last January to ensure that all citizens and organisations have access to affordable high speed communication networks. It applies in England to new and existing buildings that are subject to major renovation works. It applies for dwellings and other building than dwellings.

    The document introduces a new requirement for in-building physical infrastructure which enables copper or fibre-optic cables or wireless devices capable of delivering broadband speeds greater than 30 Mbps to be installed.

    Where the work concerns a building containing more than one dwelling, the work must be carried out so as to ensure the building is equipped in addition with a common access point for high-speed electronic communications networks.

    Approved Document

    Approved Document M

    part m document

    What does it all M – Muh-Muh-Muh-Mean?

    Publication title: Approved Document M – Access to and use of buildings: Volume 2 – Buildings other than dwellings AND Volume 1 – Dwellings Date published: Vol 1 and 2 March 2015 (Volume 1 corrected 2016) Approved Document M is now split into two Volumes being; Volume 1 Dwellings and, Volume 2 non-dwellings. Volume 2 essentially draws everything from the previous document so has the same technical content. Volume 1 (dwellings) however is now subdivided into 3 parts;
    1. Category 1 – Visitable dwellings
    2. Category 2 – Accessible and adaptable dwellings
    3. Category 3 – Wheelchair user dwellings
    Despite the titles being fairly obvious what does this actually translate to in real terms you may ask? Each Category address the requirements under the sub-headings of a) approach to… and b) circulation / use withinCategory 1 approach and circulation requirements are basically the same as was required of new dwellings complying with the superseded version of Approved Document M. The new bits therefore are Category 2 and 3 dwellings and which Category you comply with will be which will be designated to you in your planning approval. Under the ‘approach’ sub-headings Category 2 dwellings are required to be a little more generous. and it details car parking and drop-off requirements. Under the ‘circulation sub-heading they include a section called ‘habitable rooms’. The words ‘clear access zone’ feature heavily within this section along with example diagrams detailing key dimensions of these zones to be allowed for. Category 3 goes one step more an essentially provides for a full wheelchair accessible dwelling. Take a look at the difference between a Category 2 bedroom versus the Category 3 bedrooms below.
