Building Control

Building Control is all about enforcing the legislation of the Building Act 1984. All buildings must be constructed in a way that meets the standards of the Building Regulations.

The Importance of Building Control

Building Control is so important because it works to maintain the safety of people in buildings. Without Building control being reliably enforced, we would all be at greater risk.

Building Regulations apply to the majority of projects. Building Control enforces those Building Regulations, by checking for things like good ventilation and insulation, structural stability, fireproofing, and more.

An alternative to Local Authority Building Control (LABC) teams, Private Approved Inspectors are authorised under the Building Act 1984 to carry out Building Control work in England and Wales.

Approved Inspectors can be appointed in projects undertaken that require Building Regulations and help to keep those involved in the development, design, contracting, and building stages compliant.

The Advantages of using Private Approved Inspectors

Private approved inspectors are usually more responsive and efficient in terms of turn-around times.  Approved Inspectors are usually able to attend site at short notice and are often able to service clients nationally. They are able to build strong relationships with clients, aiding flexibility in client-specific work methods.

We work with approved inspectors who;


      • Are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or the Chartered Institute of Building Engineers (CIBE) and are registered with the Construction Industry Council (CIC)
      • Have completed building-related studies to degree level or equivalent and have acquired expert knowledge through real-world experience
We work with you to keep you compliant, avoiding increased costs and mitigating risk. Our understanding and knowledge of any regulation changes and legislation updates means our experts know the latest technologies and innovations used in the construction industry. This makes us adept at advising you on how to remain compliant.
