Health And Safety

For Homeowners

Having home improvements is an exciting but stressful time. The extra space an extension brings is bound to make you and your family’s life a lot easier. Unfortunately there are many pitfalls that you could encounter. One such pitfall is definitely the health and safety aspects of your work. Before work commences you and your children have to be made aware that the garden is no longer a play area but a very dangerous place of work. We take pride in our strict health and safety rules, coinciding with the regulations set by safety smart our associated partners.

What is the Party Wall Act

How Will it Affect my House Extension

The Party Wall Act was introduced to prevent building work undertaken by one neighbour undermining the structural integrity of shared walls or neighbouring properties; it also serves to avert and resolve potential neighbourly disputes which might arise. The Act came into force on 1st July 1997 in England and Wales, with Scotland and Northern Ireland exempt. .
