Here at Approved Building Control we will offer you a seamless approach to the Building Control service from conception through to completion.

Pre- application advice

If you have a project which you are hoping to undertake call one of our surveyors who will be happy to discuss your proposals. We will assign you with a single point of contact for your project in order that you receive consistent professional advice from one of our qualified members of staff. Forward a copy of your drawings via email and we can discuss your project online or we will be happy to meet on site or in our offices where we can discuss your project further.

Plan Checking Service

If you’re serious about your project we strongly recommend getting an Architect or Architectural Technologist to design your scheme. Once appointed one of our qualified members of staff will be happy to appraise your scheme in accordance with the Building Regulations. We will then advise you of any alterations that may be required to your drawings in order to achieve compliance, or issue you with an approval. If required we will also consult with the fire service at this stage as well as the local water authority and forward their comments on to you.

Site Inspection Service

Once you’ve started we will inspect the works at varying stages of its construction. You or your builder will need to advise us at key stages of the work to allow us to inspect. These key stages will all be contained within our site inspection plan which will be issued to you on appointment.

Our final job will be to inspect the works on completion. Subject to the work being satisfactory we will issue you with a final certificate.

It is important to keep this document as it will be required if you decide to sell your house in the future.
