We'll Help You Meet Building Regulations Part L in Canterbury

New building site in LondonWorking across Kent, including Canterbury, we specialise in the assessment of existing and newly built premises for Building Regulations Part L1A and L1B.

It is already incredibly important to have your buildings, whether old or new, assessed by experienced and trusted professionals, but with building regulations relating to energy efficiency, air permeability and air leakages getting stricter by the year, it is now of paramount importance.

Indeed, the current building regulations across Canterbury and Kent are now set so low that new and innovative designs and technologies are required to make sure that the new domestic and commercial dwellings pass. 

At Tophouse Assessments, we combine full qualifications and certifications with decades of experience and expertise to accurately assess your Canterbury building design to the very latest building regulations Part L. We also work closely with architects and designers from the initial stage of the project to ensure the building complies.

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

Providing A Full Compliance Checklist

As part of the current building regulations, you will be required to provide Canterbury's local authority with a full compliance report no later than one day before any building work is set to commence. This should include:

  • 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
