    Hello. Does anyone know if there's any reason to delay applying for building regs because the structural engineers report isn't ready. I'm sure on a previous job I did we got the ball rolling by applying first then gave them the engineers calculations when they asked for it which saved time.

    This is a follow on from a previous thread but I think its better to start a new one

    Many thanks

    Structural calculations will be conditioned on the approval.

    The design of the structure could be determined by the SE calcs.....brickwork returns acting as a buttress for example.

    This is quite normal, if you are submitting a full plans application, this can be conditioned. If on a Building notice just forward them when ready.
    No real advantage, work can commence within 48 hours whichever type of app you use.

  9. But isnt the OPs problem that he wants to make a start but cant do a full application yet as he doesnt have the structural calcs?

    He can submit a full plans app and the provision of the calcs can be condition on the approval, work can commence within 48 hours regardless of whether it is a full plans app or building notice.
     
  11. ok - sorry - I ass-u-me d that a full plans application would have to be complete.
