Buildings that are exempt


The provisions for exempting buildings and building work from the Building Regulations requirements have change.
See the copy of Regulations 9 on page 7.

Examples of buildings which are industrial sites and workshops with low energy demand include buildings or parts of buildings designed to be used separately whose purpose is to accommodate industrial activities in spaces where the air is not controlled. Activities that would be covered include foundries, forging and other hot processes, chemical process, food and drinks packaging, heavy
engineering, and storage and warehouses where, in each case, the air in the space is not fully heated or cooled.

Whilst not fully heated or cooled these cases may have some local conditioning appliances such as plaque or air heaters or air conditioners to serve people at work stations or refuges dispersed amongst and not separated from the industrial activates
