What is Building Control?

Building Control is a critical process where construction is checked by highly skilled building surveyors to ensure buildings are safe, accessible, secure and thermally efficient by meeting government set Building Regulations.

What is an Approved Inspector?

Approved Inspectors are private sector companies and individuals that check your plans and carry-out site inspections to check compliance with the Building Regulations. Approved Inspectors can be used instead of the local authority.

Why should I use an Approved Inspector?

Approved Inspectors are commercially aware and highly skilled surveyors that provide a proactive and customer focused building control service for all types of project across England and Wales.
