It will be inevitable that within the life of a building, some alteration or extension work will be required. Whether it is for a large commercial building, substantial development scheme or small domestic extension, it is imperative that planning consent or building regulations approval is obtained. PASS Consultants have the expertise, experience and infrastructure to provide all your planning and building regulations needs.
The investment made by a property owner to improve or expand, will often be substantial. To protect their interests, accurate drawings and documentation are essential to ensure that not only are the intentions accurate, but also to allow contractors to construct the building as intended as well as in accordance with planning building regulations.
Failure in obtaining the relevant planning consent or building regulations approval can result in enforcement action and prosecution by the local authority. Often the results are costly to the guilty party.
It is far too common that the statutory requirements are not obtained prior to the commencement of work. By discussing your requirements' needs, PASS Consultants can advise, as well as seek non-formal opinions from the local authority, to provide the most suitable package for both planning and building regulations.
We can provide a professional design service using the latest AutoCAD design suite, Promap software and printing facilities. Design needs and requirements of the client can be enhanced with our own knowledge and experience to create the most cost effective and suitable scheme for both the property and surrounding environment.
Failing to obtain statutory approval for the relevant work being carried out will in the long run be more costly and cause more inconvenience than obtaining consent prior to works commencing.
