  1. Further to my previous post I have sorted a system with the LABC but I'm looking for a someone in Scotland, preferably the western isles to help produce building control drawing for a small TF house. I now have a local SE and NHBC warranty sorted out but I would like use a local firm to produce the drawings for the warrant. I am awaiting return calls from a number of people but if anyone knows of any contacts that could help that would be much appreciated. A

  3. Yes that is correct most of what we do has to fall in this caravan category but some builds are actual mortgageable houses that sit on foundations. [commercial product name removed]. The house will need full Building control as well as a structural warranty, all of these things we have done before in England but not in Scotland yet. We have another house( its actually an extension) going to Jersey where the same issues may apply so any suggestions gratefully received Many Thanks.
  4. Further to my post I have found a company Butler and Young Group that operates UK wide. A starting point at least.
  5. Hi We are building a small modular timber frame house for a Self Build customer in Scotland. The house will be build in the South West and will be shipped to Scotland in one section. This job requires full 10 year structural warranty and BC. The BC drawings are being produced now I wondered if anyone had experience in modular BC process or suggestions of company's that could deal with the two extremes in location of the house construction and ground works. The house will be fully finished in our workshop and signed off by all trades after running up and testing and will then be lowered on to foundations on site. Any help much appreciated, we normally use Stromar or LABC but I don't think they cover Scottish regs. Thanks in advance A
  6. HI Reddal , I know this is an old post but I am drastically reducing budget on my build due to business uncertainty and with 200m 2 ground floor I'm looking at this technique and wondered how the colour and finish has held up to date. My slab is in and I have powerfloated unpolished finish which should be perfect , I concerned about UFH pipes in the slab. Thanks in advance A
  7. Hi I'm considering exposing the underside of my I joists and although we have done this in the past with solid joists without a problem I wondered what the regs are on joists and ceiling materials in a kitchen area. Clear fire retarders are available to give me 30 min but not sure how the BCO will view this? Any advice appreciated. A
  8. I have no water course to outlet into nearby and ground is solid clay hence the long run. what falls do you think work best on long runs as i am aware the solids can be left behind if its too steep.I was thinking 1:60 - 1:80
  9. I have permission for a holiday cabin 250 from my treatment pant and I can find any details on pipe size , chamber spacing's and fall for that distance of run. (max occupancy 4 persons) I have plenty of fall but i cant find any details in building regs. Any advice appreciated.
  10. Yes sorry I posted the sap report for the heat loss info. But fully take on board the need for more insulation to the GF to minimise heat loss from UFH. Being a Class Q steel frame the structure in complicated. I have time to boost the PIR under the slab. Getting back to the ASHP size, does 19kw sounds excessive ?? based on those heat loss figs as worst case.
  11. This is a barn conversion, BC have passed it, but I have upgraded Windows and doors at 1.3 now and floor upgraded also to 100mm PIR.. I will check with assessors again that all is OK. Thanks again for advice.
  12. I have this SAP report but I am not an expert in deciphering the information. !! 2018 Full SAP Calculation.pdf
  13. no plus vat . it doesn't sound like rhi worth the hassle.
  14. Todays prices FYI ::Samsung 19Kw ASHP with Unvented HW Cylinder and components £9177 against Grant Vortex 26/36 Oil System Gledhill 300ltr tank etc £3500. ex VAT
