Helping Ashford Clients Pass Building Regulations Part L1A and L1B

Ashford building siteWorking across the whole of Kent, including Ashford, we specialise in the assessment of newly built and existing premises throughout the region for Building Regulations Parts L1A and L1B. 

While it is already incredibly important to have both old and new buildings assessed by trusted and experienced professionals, it is even more paramount now thanks to the new building regulations relating to energy efficiency, air permeability and air leakages.

In fact, the current building regulations across Ashford and Kent are now set so low that innovative and new technologies and designs are having to be utilised to ensure that any new commercial or domestic dwellings pass.

At Tophouse Assessments, we combine decades of expertise and experience with full certifications and qualifications to accurately and efficiently assess any Ashford building design to the very latest building regulations Part L. We also work alongside designers and architects from the very beginning stage of the project to ensure that the domestic or commercial building always complies. 

We work across Kent, including Ashford, so call our qualified and experienced team today on 01634 799115 for free building regulations Part L advice and a no obligation quotation.

  • The target emission rate and fabric energy efficiency for the building
  • An evaluation of alternative high energy efficiency systems
  • The calculated CO2 emission rate and fabric energy efficiency from the building as designed
  • A list of specifications to which the dwelling is to be constructed
