    What are Building Regulations?

    Building regulations are developed by the government, and approved by Parliament. They apply to almost every building, and relate to the minimum standards your building must adhere to for construction, design, and alterations. The standards ensure the building’s safety, and cover a broad section of requirements, such as access, structure, and fire safety.

    How do the regulations ensure fire safety?

    Of course, it is imperative to consider the potential impact of fire on your building. Building Regulations dictate the degree of fire resistance that must be met by each element of your building’s structure; the British Standard 476 ‘dictates the appropriate fire tests for these elements of structure/materials’, and therefore ‘grades the level of fire resistance’. BS476 is composed of a comprehensive list of stringent current fire safety standards. – (BS EN 13501-1:2018 Fire classification of construction products and building elements.
