Retail developments: building control and consultancy services

Local authority building control surveyors provide the building control services for major shopping centres, supermarkets, mixed use developments, national roll-out programmes and small scale fit-outs. Our surveyors have been chosen to provide building control services on the most technically complex projects and developments and our early involvement and availability adds real value to the design process.

Here are a small selection of the projects we've worked on (and read our M&S sustainability case study: Cheshire Oaks):
