Changes to the Building Regulations

This does not apply to work subject to a building notice, full plans application or initial notice submitted before that date, provided work is started on site before 15 June 2023.

Part L of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) contains requirements relating to the conservation of fuel and power. It sets the standards for the energy performance and carbon emissions of new and existing buildings.

Replacements & Extensions to Existing Homes

Replacement windows and doors can't have worse performance than the elements that they replace.

We have been working with manufacturers that have prepared for these changes in advance, and all of our products already meet these new requirements as standard. Please contact a member of our team if you need anymore information regarding the changes to the building regulations.
