Taking your Career in Construction to the Next Level with the Virtual Academy
The Building Control Act 1990 and the Building Control Regulations 1997 were introduced in order to guarantee minimum standards in building practice in relation to design and construction methods. The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2014 (BCAR) represent one of the most significant changes to the Building Control Code and affect all stages of the building process from design to completion.
BCAR rules apply to the design and construction of new homes, home extensions larger than 40 square meters and works where a fire safety certificate is necessary. The aim of BCAR is to increase accountability and ensure compliance with Building Regulations, safeguarding the quality of future housing here in Ireland. BCAR also promotes health, safety and welfare and ensures a sustainable level of environmental protection whilst also promoting good practice which will enhance consumer confidence in the construction industry and those who work in it.
