Local authority building control is the largest provider of building control services to the construction industry by far and as a not-for-profit operation our services are always charged at cost.
Here are some of the developments our teams have been involved in:
A development of affordable studios for over 100 artists within a Grade I listed factory.
Pre-commencement meetings began at a very early stage, because bringing this project in on budget was going to prove a challenge. The building control team were able to help ensure the best balance of compliance and conservation.

Communication and regular co-ordinated meetings were key to the success of this project and a strong relationship of trust and confidence was forged with the local authority along the way.
