Building Regulations Service

Your home will need to comply with Building Regulations, and we can prepare the Building Regulations application for you if you wish. You may have bought a plot that comes with full Planning Approval, but not with a Building Regulations Approval, so we can take the drawings you have received with your purchase of the plot and get all the work done for a fixed fee.

We are at the forefront of all the latest changes to the current regulations and enjoy a superb relationship with a Private Building Control Company that can offer national coverage, they manage all our applications. When we apply for Building Regulations Approval we submit to the same company where ever the project, we know the inspectors and they know our Timber Frame system so in effect gives you the client a seamless process.

This process gives you the client best value as nothing is over specified and meets all current regulations and more.

 

Your Bespoke Timber Frame

Your new timber frame home will be built to an agreed specification discussed and agreed with ourselves during the order stage.  If we then are asked to carry out the Building Regulation Approval as well, this will be done and agreed prior to your Timber Frame design being carried out so in effect, we need to be involved a lot earlier.  But this does if you require that service, offer you peace of mind.  This also gives us the chance with yourselves to get concluded other elements that we will need information on during our design stage of the Timber Frame i.e. Are you using Heat Recovery/ Ventilation? Underfloor Heating which floors? Thermal performance etc

Once this is all done and agreed it makes it a lot easier for us the run our Timber Frame Design, firstly we will issue you a ‘Soleplate Drawing’ and Section Drawings for your approval.

Once approved these MUST be issued to your groundworker to carry out the building of your slab.

We will then issue prelim drawings again for your approval, this gives you the chance to make any changes, then once we receive approval from you we will run up final manufacturing information. NOTE any delays in signing off the design may delay the delivery.

Your Bespoke Timber Frame will then be issued to the factory to be manufactured in our facility in Presteigne and prepared ready for delivery to your site.  You will notice we have control of your project at every step of the journey.

 

Thermal Performance

We are very experienced in the current Thermal performances and specifications you will require, at Frame Technologies we are different from most as we can supply all of the different insulations and these can be fitted into our Timber Frame Panels, obviously, we have our favourites!!!

We will be able to help you choose the most cost effective but Thermally Efficient Insulation to suit your project and advise you of the costs if your budget permits you to increase the performance it is only a touch of a button away.

We can also carry out your SAP calculations which will also be required by Building Control these are the measure of the Thermal performance of your home based on the heating used, windows being used etc. but there are also trade off’s that can help you achieve the ultimate performance at a price you can afford.
