To satisfy the Requirements of this manual you must comply with:

  • The applicable technical requirements of the Building Regulations. This will be dependent upon the location within the United Kingdom (i.e. England and Wales, Scotland,Northern Ireland) or Ireland.All other statutory technical requirements e.g. Water Regulations, Gas (Installation and Use) Regulations, etc.

  • Relevant British or European Standards in respect of design, workmanship and materials.

  • Agreement certificates in respect of composite materials and building components

  • The completion of a satisfactory Technical Audit Assessment undertaken by Build-Zone Survey Services Ltd. When interpreting these Requirements and Guidance the standards of construction achieved shall never fall below the minimum standard set by the applicable Building Regulations.
