This is my first post on here although I've found the info on here invaluable in the past. Basically I have a friend who has a plot of land that currently houses some old lock ups/storage units. He is wanting to look at potentially putting apartments on the plot (its in not too bad a location). At this stage trying to avoid architects fees and produce some sketches as to how many units could fit on the site to see if its worth taking forward.
I am semi-familiar with building regs, but regarding apartments at what point/building height is it required that an elevator needs to be provided?
