"Thomas Homes has found Swindon Borough Council’s Building Control team a pleasure to work with, on the Old Railway Quarter. The experience and professionalism they  brought to this hugely complex development, has ensured the delivery of this legacy scheme."

Chris Brotherton, Director Thomas Homes

"At NC Architects Ltd we strive to be the best we can be, only using the very best labour both in house and with our appointed consultant teams. This approach has allowed us to be streamlined, collaborative and react quickly to changes as a team saving our clients time and money.

"Swindon Borough Council's (SBC) Building Control team fit perfectly into this ethos and triumph all the same attributes we employ and expect. Their approach to working with you and the regulations collaboratively from day one of the design right through to project completion and beyond is exemplary and given the choice we wouldn’t go anywhere else for our building control needs."

"We request to use SBC Building control with all our clients on all our projects from large developer housing right through to large and small commercial projects. The clients that are resistant to change at first very quickly change their mind when they see what SBC Building control have to offer.

"Another very important part of SBC Building Control is their involvement in the LABC Partnership scheme. This has been an invaluable service again streamlining the process of plan checking from well-established professional relationships.

"With helpful staff, a can do attitude all at a competitive price, why would you go anywhere else? Long may the relationship continue."
