Helping Guildford Clients Pass Building Regulations Part L

Guildford building siteWorking across the whole of Essex, London and the South East, including Guildford, we specialise in the assessment of existing and newly built premises throughout the region for Building Regulations Parts L1A and L1B.

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

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

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

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