Building control inspections

Book a site inspection

We make statutory and routine inspections during the construction stage of the building to check compliance with the building regulations and other allied legislation and guidance.

Before you book an inspection make sure you have the following information ready:

  1. Reference number
  2. Site address
  3. Builder's name, address and telephone (first inspection only).
  4. Work requiring inspection.
  5. Date work will be ready for inspection

Call 01327 322240 before 10:00am and arrangements will be made for a site surveyor to call at the site on the same day where possible
