What we do

Our team of professionally qualified Building Control Surveyors and support staff provide impartial advice and assistance to the public and to their agents, architects, builders, developers and other professionals. They will examine and comment upon plans for building work or development requiring consent and carry out inspections of related work in progress to ensure that building proposals are designed and carried out in accordance with modern standards set out in the Building Regulations and Approved Documents. The service also deals with:

  • Dangerous structures
  • Demolitions
  • Means of escape in case of fire from the majority of buildings
