Replacement of pre-fab garage in North Herts
The Client, for whom I have carried out two full building surveys for in the past, approached me as he wished to demolish the existing pre-fab garage with a larger, modern replacement.
There were a number of issues, the main one being that as the new garage was to exceed 30msq, it had to comply with current building regulations. This presented challenges regarding depths of foundations because of adjacent trees (now removed), fire regulations (as adjacent neighbouring boundary) and floor design.
After consultation with the Client, I submitted my application which was subsequently approved.
