Building Regulations

Building Regulations are set out by the government to ensure that each house built in Ireland is to a minimum standard that must be complied to. The regulations apply to the manufacture of products and service and the use of the product by the consumer.

Standards are set out to protect work environments and the quality of goods.
Below you will find examples of what building regulations will require of you as a self-builder, but as each project is different do consult your qualified architect or engineer about what effects this would have on your build and make sure that they are adhered to and kept by the contractors.
