The majority of building work requires consent under the Building Regulations; however, some types of minor works are not subject to control (see exemptions overleaf). Building works are generally termed the construction of new buildings, extensions and alterations (both internal and external), underpinning, the installation and alteration of drainage works and sanitary fittings, the installation of boilers, replacement windows, chimneys, unventilated hot water storage systems, electrical installations/rewiring (see Electrical Safety Guidance Note) alterations to access and facilities for both disabled people and the Fire Brigade. If in doubt, ask.
