Making sure buildings meet legal and regulatory standards
The building control service ensures that building work complies with the Building Regulations, a set of standards intended to protect people's safety, health and welfare in and around built environments.
It's important to realise that those carrying out the building work are responsible for complying with the Building Regulations and the role of our building control service is to check that they do so.
Our building control team check all aspects of construction including but not limited to:
- structural issues
- the accessibility of a building
- fire protection and means of escape in case of fire
