Building Control can be a complex process, full of rules and regulations, which is why it is important to ensure that there is a consistent approach, with integrity and transparency every step of the way.
Approved Inspectors provide an alternative to Local Authority Building Control and are authorised under the Building Act 1984 to carry out building control work in England and Wales. This means that Approved Inspectors can become involved if the works undertaken on any project are controllable under the Building Regulations.
Compliance with Building Regulations is only part of the process, as these Regulations are designed to ensure that minimum requirements are met, which doesn’t always necessarily allow for the design aspirations of clients and architects to be realised.
At The OM Group, we work with a team of highly qualified and experienced construction professionals, all of whom have been providing private Building Control services for several years. We are committed to ensuring that services are bespoke to each project and client – from developers to architects and end users, and that innovation plays a crucial role in developing safe buildings.
We work with Approved Inspectors covering all sectors of the construction industry – from commercial to residential, public sector to private developers and areas such as leisure and hospitality, education and healthcare. They all have one common goal – that by overseeing regulatory compliance, whilst providing robust project management and bespoke inspection regimes focusing on risk mitigation, they aim to help enhance the experience of the building’s end-users.
