Starting building work

Domestic extensions

This will usually include:

  • Foundation excavations
  • Dpc / dpm.
  • Drainage, laid and tested
  • Brickwork / external walls at first lift and first and second floor levels as appropriate
  • Completed roof structure
  • Pre-plaster
  • Structural steelwork
  • Any other works the Council consider unusual design or method of construction
  • Completion

There may be other stages of work that we need to inspect, particularly for other types of projects. For example, loft conversions where inspection of critical elements such as floor, roof, fire precautions and steel works will also be carried out.

The surveyor will be happy to discuss these with you at the start of the project.
