"Adding real value"


Our Approved Inspector Service

Building Regulation approval is required for most building work and our Approved Inspector service has been designed to minimise delay and bureaucracy in obtaining these approvals. As a private sector company operating in a competitive environment we are fully aware of the competitive pressures under which our clients operate. Our service has therefore been designed accordingly.

What are the advantages of using our Approved Inspector service? Well, we pride ourselves on adding real value to our clients’ businesses by:

  • providing Building Regulation approvals and Final Certificates and thereby removing the need to apply to local authorities for Building Regulation approval,
  • identifying aspects of designs that exceed Building Regulation requirements and suggesting cost saving options,
  • giving Building Regulation related advice free of charge prior to formal project registration,
  • providing consistent Building Regulation advice by having the same surveyor dealing with a project from inception to completion irrespective of geographical location,
  • being keenly competitive on price,
  • becoming involved with the design team at an early stage to ensure that any Building Regulation issues are ironed out early on,
  • adopting a flexible client driven approach to the delivery of our service at both design and construction stages,
  • working strictly to clients’ time scales,
  • consulting and negotiating with fire authorities to ensure their fire safety requirements are met,
  • keeping clients informed of any “local Act” obligations and assisting in complying with these,
  • exchanging most information electronically and by plotting all hard copy plans we need ourselves,
  • only deploying fully qualified and experienced building control surveyors,
  • adopting a very simple and straightforward project registration process for clients including eliminating the need for lengthy form filling,
  • appreciating that our clients operate in a highly competitive industry, and the importance of maintaining complete client confidentiality,
  • delivering the service within a third party audited ISO 9001 quality management system.
