The hup! building system from Ultraframe has been approved by Assent and JHAI.
This means users can choose to work with either industry body to carry out their Building Regulation approvals as a simple alternative to working with their Local Authority.
Marketing director Alex Hewitt said: “Both providers are highly experienced and handle thousands of Building Regulation applications each year to make life easier for builders and installers.
“Building Regulation requirements differ by project type, and so to offer transparency to hup! builders we have agreed procedures and fees with both Assent and JHAI for various types of hup! build.”
The hup! build types included under the approvals schemes with Assent and JHAI include replacement roofs, traditional extensions with any Ultraframe roof, hup! conservatory transformations, and entire hup! extensions. This enables hup! installers to understand the inspection requirements at various stages of different build types and means that there will be a consistent approach across building inspectors, so builders know what to expect.
Ultraframe has agreed specific procedures and prices for hup! when used for different types of builds, ensuring pricing reassurance and consistency for builders. For example, a replacement roof project will require one inspection, while a hup! extension will require three and will be priced higher than the replacement roof project.
