Simply Build It

So if your rebuilding it, does that mean it's been knocked down and your starting from stratch?
So Building Controls will be involved, so have you contacted an electrician or are you considering DIYing it if so you need someone who has some knowlegde of electrical installation to help you.
The answer to your question is likely to be no but it depends on the design of the installation and the use of RCD/RCCB/RCBOs
