Building application process

Today's building regulations are complicated and subject to frequent changes. Sweco's experts on the regulations relating to the building application process are able to assist with everything from the planning to the completion of such processes. We have become specialists in our role as a responsible applicant.

Legally responsible applicant

Do you require a legally responsible applicant? When dealing with the local authorities, Sweco can represent you by taking on the role of a legally responsible applicant. We provide advice during the building application process and help with planning the progress of projects.

We gather any relevant information during the early stages in order to ensure that the correct documentation is in place at the right time – in line with your progress schedule.

In their role as legally responsible applicants, Sweco's representatives take responsibility for ensuring a smooth application process. They ensure that the final application – and any applications for dispensations and non-conformance – contain all the necessary information required by the local authorities for processing them.

Sweco has its own teams of responsible applicants who are qualified lawyers with experience from the local building authorities, county governors and the Norwegian Building Authority.
