Hi... new here.

I own a large village hall / place of worship. 10m x 17m space inside.

If you are planning to carry out the work yourself I think you should speak to your local building control service before you start since it sounds like a significant alteration and if it turns out that you need to make changes once the work is in progress that's just going to cost you a lot of extra cash and time.

If you are employing a builder they will usully sort out the building regs and site inspections, but be sure to clarify that this is their resposibility before work starts.
