Damp proof courses and membrane

Inspections to ensure that suitable materials are used and that work covered by the Building Regulations is to a reasonable standard may also be carried out. If necessary use of other professional expertise and testing procedures may be required.
Work on site does not need to be strictly as shown on the approved plans. Minor changes can be agreed with the building control officer as the work proceeds as long as the finished work complies with the Building Regulations. If major changes are needed it may be necessary to submit a fresh Full Plans Application.
