As the client, schools have a legal responsibility to ensure that all building and alteration works comply with the Building Regulations. WBC Building Control can help schools quickly establish whether their proposals will require Building Control approval, along with providing support and guidance throughout this process. With early involvement at pre- planning and pre-application stage our expertise and experience will reduce both the cost and compliance risk from the design process.
If approval is necessary, it is a statutory requirement to submit a Building Regulation application prior to work commencing. Failure to comply with the Building Regulations, may result in enforcement action being taken, and the need for work to be removed and replaced at additional cost if this not the case. It may also result in legal action being taken by the authority against the owner for failure to comply with the Building Regulations
