Here are some of our frequently asked questions to help you get started with an architect.

What are Building Regulations?

Building Regulations  are a set of standards and requirements that govern the design, construction, and alteration of buildings. 

They aim to ensure the health, safety, welfare, and energy efficiency of occupants and the public. Key aspects covered by building regulations include structural integrity, fire safety, accessibility, energy conservation, ventilation, drainage, and electrical safety. 

Compliance with building regulations is mandatory for most construction projects and is enforced by local authorities through inspections and approvals at various stages of construction.

As part of our services, MOJO will create a full set of Building Regulation drawings and information which can be submitted for signoff.

What is the difference between Planning Permission and Building Regulations?

Planning permission and building regulations are two separate processes that govern construction projects.

Planning permission focuses on the suitability of a development within its surroundings, while building regulations focus on the technical and safety aspects of the construction process. 

Both processes are important and often required for most construction projects.
