What are building regulation drawings and what they are used for? 

Building regulation drawings are a far more detailed set of drawings that need to accompany a set of planning drawings. Building regulation drawings show how a proposed building, extension or home improvement will be constructed. Building control needs to see these drawings before construction work starts to ensure the construction of the project will meet minimum building regulations.

After building control has checked these drawings, they will carry out regular site visits until the project has been fully completed to check and ensure the build is being built to the building regulations drawings.

What do Building regulation drawings show? 

The average set of building regulation drawings on a domestic property should detail things like depths and sizes of concrete foundations, and how new floors will be constructed which include damp courses including size and type of insulation. How the brick walls will be constructed, and how steel beams and lintels are to be fitted within the walls. How the roof will be created including sizes of timbers, airflow to prevent condensation, and insulation right through to fitting the final roof coverings. Detailing fire prevention, and fire escape routes, right through to soakaways in the garden that take the rain surface water away.

The building regulation drawings should show details and notes on how the whole construction project will be put together ensuring it meets minimum requirements.
