Building Control in Tunbridge Wells

Building addition is a great way to add space to your existing home, while you add your home’s value too. Adding an additional room or domestic extensions is much cheaper than shopping a new home and it can make your home seem brand new again.

First, you need to decide what type of addition you want to add to your home. You can add a porch, deck, bedroom etc. This is the time to get creative with your ideas and decide what features you want in your new room. Dream big and envision every detail of the new room. You may have to scale back your design later because of the costs involved. However, try adding everything into the initial design process to make the new room absolutely perfect in your mind. There are many addition plans online, or you can get an architect or engineer to design the plans for you in line with the structural engineering. Before you choose any plan you need to think about the existing walls and foundation and how your extension ties into those walls and foundation. This is an important aspect of designing room additions, because if they are not tied in correctly it can develop structural and other problems in the future. That is where professional structural engineers come to aid in designing the plan.

Next, you need to find out about building regulations . It is advisable that you hire approved inspectors . These people work with engineers, district surveyors and designs etc. All new constructions and extensions are required to have a SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure) rating, attained through SAP Calculations, and SBEM Calculations to gauge the standard energy efficiency achieved. Approved inspectors get all necessary approvals from local building control bodies. Each firm charges different amount of building control fees for services rendered.
