Here at Southern Building Control Partnership we provide the building control service for almost 70% of the notifiable construction projects in our three Local Authority areas. Our combined experience means we have worked on all types of projects from domestic extensions and one-off new builds to large commercial projects and housing developments.
As a Council service we are a not-for profit organisation, offering value for money as well as the highest level of customer service. (As the results of our monthly customer surveys testify.)
Over many years our team has built up excellent working relationships with many of the architects and builders in our area and we offer pre-application and ongoing advice throughout the stages of your project.
We aim to plan check your application within 10 working days and our in-house structural engineer checks calculations within the same timeframe. We give you the peace of mind only a Local Authority can of an approved set of plans to give to your builder before he starts work on site.
If your builder prefers to work on a building notice, we just need this submitted to us with the correct fee 48 hours before they start work.
Helping to keep your project running smoothly
As a local team of professionally qualified surveyors and engineers, we are able to offer same day site visits, ensuring your builder is not held up on site. We have a wealth of understanding about local ground conditions, site constraints and past history. Our regular site inspections mean we can offer on-going advice to your builder as well as check the work meets the building regulations.
Our commitment to continual training
We understand how important it is for our team to keep up to date with the latest legislation and construction products and services so that we can share the benefit of our knowledge with our customers. We run our own monthly CPD events and all our surveyors and engineers complete a minimum amount of professional training hours a year.
The peace of mind of a completion certificate
Once work is completed on site, we have carried out a satisfactory final inspection and received any relevant competent person scheme notifications we can issue your completion certificate. This shows that your project met the building regulations and was regularly inspected by us. It is the document you will need to provide to any future purchaser if you decide to sell your property in the future.
