Building Regulations

Modern buildings are required to comply with continually evolving Building Control Regulations and Legislation. These Regulations have just been updated in 2012.  The reason behind this was to improve the safety, health and welfare of people living and working in and around buildings. They are also designed to further the conservation of fuel and energy, thus encouraging energy efficiency and to encourage sustainable development.

The results of the updated Regulations mean that buildings will require more insulation material, higher efficiency boilers and services such as energy meters etc.  This will ultimately result in an increase in the cost of constructing these buildings and will have a big impact on businesses, owners, developers, architects and builders alike as they will have to meet these new criteria.

EBSNI are fully aware of all these changes and are well placed to offer both sound advice and support to our customers; promoting a smooth planning, construction and completion process.
