The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic leaves us living in unprecedented times. All Northern Ireland’s Building Control Departments are now in a period of recovery, working to resume the delivery of their full range of services while keeping themselves, builders and applicants safe. This involves new working practices. Please see your Local Council website or contact the Building Control Department in your Local Council area to see what services can be provided currently.
Also, to help individuals working in the construction sector keep themselves and their work colleagues safe, please refer to the latest information on the following websites;
Construction Employers Federation – COVID-19 Advice www.cefni.co.uk
Construction Industry Federation – COVID-19 Advice (working close to the border to/in the RoI) www.cif.ie
Take care and stay safe
The Department of Finance has recently launched two consultations on the energy efficiency standards for new buildings and the revision of Building Control fees.
