Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


To help you to achieve a successful build, our ESconsult team offer a range of extra services.

These services will show that your project meets the Building Regulations. These will be required when creating dwellings, flats and conversions.

We can help you in the most cost effective and practical way for your build. We can do this by meeting building standards, whilst remaining supportive to your design.

We undertake a thorough plan check and do site inspections. This helps to avoid costly issues arising later. This will allow you to build, knowing that your work will meet with current regulations.

Acoustic testing

New dwellings have to meet Part E of the Building Regulations. They must pass a sound resistance test or be constructed using Robust Details.

Please visit the LABC Acoustic page for more information.

Air pressure testing

Part L of the Building Regulations covers energy efficiency standards for new homes. A sample of new homes on all developments must pass an air leakage test. This is also known as air tightness, air permeability or air pressure testing.

Testing can highlight cost effective improvements that can achieve a better rating.
