Why you may need planning
With all building work, the owner of the property (or land) in question is ultimately responsible for complying with the relevant planning rules and building regulations (regardless of the need to apply for planning permission and/or building regulations approval or not).
Therefore, failure to comply with the relevant rules will result in the owner being liable for any remedial action (which could go as far as demolition and/or restoration). CCS will guide you through the process advising and discussing your proposals to make sure the relevant local planning authority and building control service will be happy before starting work.
Contemporary construction services specialises in providing structural calculations for building regulation applications in the UK providing a full structural engineering consultancy service.
CCS understands the stresses and loads required when building and will assist in providing the correct material either in steel or wood that will take the correct load needed
What does Passive House mean?
Passivhaus or ‘Passive House’ is the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world with 30,000 buildings realised to date with the majority of those since the turn of the century. The Passivhaus standards strengths lie in the simplicity of its approach; build a house that has an excellent thermal performance, exceptional airtightness with mechanical ventilation!
While your project may not require the rigorous processes that passive houses need, the thermal dynamics of any new build require high levels of energy efficiency using the latest building material. CCS has a dedicated team of energy consultants who keep up-to-date with the latest procedures and legislation.
CCS can provide architectural drawings that can be used for you planning application. The main purpose of construction drawings (also called plans, blueprints, or working drawings) is to show what is to be built, while the specifications focus on the materials, installation techniques, and quality standards.
