Collaborative, responsive, experienced
Benefit from our experience
We are the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) service for Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge Councils. In 2017 we became a Partnership when the existing teams from our three councils merged. As a large and experienced local team we have in-depth Building Regulations knowledge. We work collaboratively with you and offer guidance throughout the lifecycle of your project.
The Regulations can be complex. Our surveyors and structural engineer are happy to offer you advice and help find solutions, without compromising on building standards. As a Local Authority we are the only Building Control service able to provide the peace of mind of an Approval Notice and to approve plans before work starts on site. Being local means we can offer same day site inspections, so we won't hold up your build.
In recognition of how important we consider quality in all aspects of our Partnership, in December 2018 we were awarded ISO 9001. As part of our ethos to remain customer-focused and deliver excellent service we are continually improving our internal processes and focusing on staff training.
What our customers think
The results of our customer survey over the last two years demonstrate our service standards, as do our customer testimonials. 88% of respondents said we were 'helpful' and we were rated 'very good' by over 84% of respondents in the following areas:
- ease of contact
- technical expertise
- quality of advice given
- promptness of inspections
- meetings deadlines.
"May I say it has been a great pleasure working with Southern BCP through this whole process with special thanks to Phil, who has made my life on site so much easier and I look forward to working with your team in the near future."
