Helping Croydon Clients Meet Building Regulations

New building site in CroydonWorking for clients across Croydon and London, we specialise in the assessment of existing and new buildings for Building Regulations parts L1A and L1B.

It is already absolutely essential to have your Croydon building assessed by experienced and dedicated professionals, but with building regulations relating to energy efficiency and air leakages getting stricter by the year, it is now of paramount importance.

In fact, building regulations for buildings and properties across Croydon and London are now set so exceptionally low that innovative and new designs and technologies are required to ensure that the new dwellings pass all relevant rules and regulations.  

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

We work across London and Croydon, so call our experienced and qualified 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
