Collaborative, reliable, experienced
We are a large and experienced team with in-depth Building Regulations knowledge. We work collaboratively from concept to completion and our surveyors and structural engineers aim to help find solutions to get the job done efficiently and cost effectively, without compromising on building standards.
We are proud to be part of the LABC network, the only national Building Control service delivering impartial and professional Building Control services throughout England and Wales. With over 3,500 technically qualified professionals we offer strength in numbers and are able to draw on this expertise in addition to our own in-house knowledge and experience.
Our fees are competitive and good value and it is easy to make an application and payment online via our Application Portal. As a Local Authority we are the only Building Control service to provide the peace of mind of an Approval Notice and approve plans before work starts on site. We work electronically but we haven't forgotten the importance of the human touch and you will find us easy to contact, for example if you need pre-application advice or to book one of our surveyors to make site visits. We are there to help with friendly, practical advice at any stage of your project.
If your project involves developing new homes or you are a self-builder, through LABC Consult we offer a full range of consultancy services from energy calculations, acoustic surveys and testing to fire and structural engineering. Structural warranties are also available through our partnership with LABC Warranty who have seen their market share of new home registrations grow substantially year on year.
As part of our continual learning ethos we provide regular free lunchtime CPD training in Dorking, Reigate and Oxted for our own team and local agents, contractors and engineers. The training covers the latest construction techniques and innovations as well as Building Regulations updates. You can find out more here.
In recognition of how important we consider quality in all aspects of our business, in December 2018 we were awarded ISO 9001.We continue to refine our internal processes to ensure they remain customer focused and deliver excellent service.
