Building Regulations Control

Building Regulations are requirements that must be met for construction. Each local authority has a building control department which will independently assess your self build plans and visit your self build site to check that your are building correctly. Now there is a service available where you can get independent inspectors to do the job instead of the local authority

Independent Building Regulations Control

By utilising a network of approved inspectors operating throughout England and Wales, you now have the option to make your building
regulations application to an approved inspector rather than the local authority. Approved inspectors have fulfilled rigorous government requirements and are licensed to act as building control inspectors.


When you select the building control option with a Build-Zone structural warranty the service offers you:

Reduced Costs
The approved inspector building control service can often be cheaper than your local authority.

Pro-active Involvement
All surveyors carry a wealth of experience and will offer pro-active involvement during design phase leading to savings in build-cost later on.

Nationally Recognised and Quality Assured
Approved inspectors are chartered surveyors, experts in all aspects of Building Regulation and offer an independently certified, quality assured service.

Combine with a Structural Warranty
Uniquely, we have linked together the technical audit requirements of a structural warranty and the building control service provided by the Approved Inspector to offer you a prompt service with a dedicated surveyor. This is cost effective and enables a faster turnaround of Stage Payment Release Certificates for your lender.

Saving Time and Money
The inspectors are committed to providing you with the optimum service possible. They will welcome your participation and willingly discuss any matters and in most cases they will save you time and money!
