  • Value for Money
    Our Building Control service is not profit making, and we don’t have to travel huge distances to carry out site inspections helping to minimise our costs. This means we offer exceptional value for money. We also provide a quotation service and can offer stage payments for larger projects.
  • Partner Authority Scheme
    This is a national scheme in which a company is partnered with a local authority Building Control Section who checks all the projects (plan approval only) for that company. The inspecting authority where the project is in the country then carries out the site inspections.
