Vallcorba Enginyers is an office focused in openings of establishments that gives service to Sant Feliu De Codines.
Our goal is to provide knowledge and training so that all our clients can start their business with all the guarantees, knowing that they have done things well and that they are complying with the current laws.
We help our clients to obtain the authorization of activity, the consent of the works, the legalization of the necessary installations, the direction of the work and the interior design. We process the pertinent documentation at the Sant Feliu De Codines town hall and contact the municipal operator to show the project and detect the key and perilous points.
We always suggest that before renting the premises and signing the contract with the owner, you talk to the specialists at Vallcorba Enginyers to draw up a report on the real situation of the premises and thus be able to calculate the cost of the works. There are spaces that at first sight the entrepreneur does not know how to determine the investment.
Our aim is to offer a complete technical service to the user so that he can focus on the things he controls and not have to worry.
We can classify the activities according to their environmental impact on the municipality:
- Responsible declaration or municipal communication regime
- Prior notification regime according to Law 18/2020
- Prior notification regime according to Annex III of Law 20/2009
- Environmental license according to Annex II of the law 20/2009
Prior to the start of the works, we always ask the Sant Feliu de Codines Town Council for a study of urban planning compatibility to ensure that the activity that the consumer wishes to establish complies with the urban planning regulations and that there are no inconveniences.

Frequently asked questions about Activity and opening license in Sant Feliu De Codines
When is a minor works project needed?
By law, a building project is required when changes in distribution are made, that is, when we build new floors (both ceramic and plasterboard) and when ramps are incorporated or stairs are removed. More information.
When will we need a major works project?
Often the activities do not need a major works project, as this is required when structural modifications are carried out.
When is an electricity project needed?
In order to verify whether an electricity project signed by an expert is required, it is necessary to look at the table ITC-BT-04 of the Low Voltage Electrical Statute.
In several situations, activities are considered public places if there are more than 49 people and, therefore, it is compulsory to draw up a project.
In other cases it is also necessary to do it in industries if there is more than 20kW or mechanical workshop, as they are considered as premises at risk of fire.
It is also necessary to project for parking areas that have mechanical ventilation or parking areas that have natural ventilation and have more than 5 parking spaces. More information.
Can they ask us for more documents?
More projects may be requested by the engineer if the thermal installations exceed 70kW, or if a gas installation of more than 70kW is carried out.
When is a fire brigade report required?
A prior report from the fire brigade and a subsequent favourable control document from a control company is required in those cases in which the activity is established in Annex II of Law 3/2010, which regulates the law on prevention and safety in matters of fires in shops, activities, infrastructures and dwellings.
Are inspections carried out by control bodies?
In almost all localities the council itself, when it has the documents, concludes according to its own criteria whether it will proceed to carry out a routine control of the establishment, or whether it accepts the documents as good. The more documentation they can send and the more credible they can be, the less reason the council will have to carry out the inspection. The Associations of Control are normally needed in the capital city of Barcelona and in specific locations that subcontract this assistance.
How can the activity be defined?
From Vallcorba Enginyers, we carry out a free consultation at the town hall of Sant Feliu de Codines and we explain the procedures to follow.
