What is Building Control?

We provide a proactive and efficient Building Regulations Consultancy. Our team of highly experienced surveyors, engineers and support staff can provide design and feasibility consultation with our extensive knowledge of a wide range of projects of all sizes and complexities.

What are the Building Regulations?

They are legal requirements which are laid down by Parliament and are supported by separate documents containing practical and technical guidance on compliance, which are known as Approved Documents.

The main purpose of Building Regulations is to ensure the health and safety of the persons in or about buildings,

  • conservation of fuel and power,
  • access to and use of buildings.

Please be aware that complying with the building regulations and obtaining planning permission are separate matters.

We also deal with other building related issues including:
