Our Building Control Service

Before you build, extend, convert or make alterations to a property, you may need to submit a Building Regulation application to your Local Authority Building Control section. This will take the form of either a Full Plans application, Building Notice submission or if you have already carried out the works a Regularisation Certificate.

Our friendly helpful team of Building Control Surveyors and administration officers provide impartial advice and assistance to the public and/ or their agents, architects, builders, developers, and other professionals to help guide you through the maze of Building Regulations.
