Building Regulations and Documentation

The architect has the task and responsibility to document the design concept in such manner as to provide detailed drawings and information used by the various contractors, directly.

In this, there is a transition that is required to convert design language to construction terms and information, directions and instructions.

We can work to many requirements and meet our clients specification including their required design and practical features.

For specialist roofing including copper and zinc roofs we work with an experience company who we will work with throughout the project. This work requires a large portion of the professional’s fee and extensive time for production.

The documents

The higher the quality of these documents the more the construction will be enabled and facilitated. This is work that is unavoidable and most necessary. It is well worth checking out both the local Building Regulations and Building permits and licences to ensure that your build will not break any rules.

In addition, the working drawings must be accompanied by suitable construction specifications.

The two sets of documents must be closely coordinated, supplementary and complementary, so as to be inseparable [i.e., the project cannot be built using just one set of the documents]. The reason for this is that some information is easily [and better] depicted graphically, while other data is incapable of being depicted and must be produced in written form.

Architects prepare the technical or “working” documents (construction drawings and specifications), usually coordinated with and supplemented by the work of a variety of disciplines [i.e., with varied expertise like mechanical, plumbing, electrical, civil, structural, etc.] engineers for the building services and that are filed for obtaining permits (development and building permits) that require compliance with building, seismic, and relevant federal and local regulations.

These construction drawings and specifications are also used for pricing the work, and for construction.
