Building Control

Building Control Services

Delivering building control approved inspections

Building Regulations in the UK are complex and with new legislation comes new regulations. Keeping up with the latest requirements can be a difficult and time-consuming task for any construction company. Furthermore, Building Regulation approval is a mandatory process, which must be gained through a third-party.

As a result, construction companies are increasingly turning to an independent, third-party specialist to ensure expert interpretation and a consistent approach to the implementation of Building Regulations.
