Porch East Belfast
Building one is normally exempt building Control approval. Providing any glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the appropriate building regulations. It is is normally exempt from building regulations approval if the front entrance door between the existing house and the new porch remain in place and also if the house has ramped or level access for disabled people, the new build must not adversely affect this access.
This build at 10 Massey Park Belfast replaced a badly built Conservatory acting as a porch which was falling away from the main House and restored the houses integrity.
Project Advice for a Porch?
Conservatories do not require Building Control on their Foundations. Because of this the Conservatory was falling away from the house. From the Video you can clearly see the depth of the Foundation we poured. It is painfully clear the Conservatory was built to avoid the necessary excavation and do a quick job. Please don’t fall into the same trap.
