We are only a few minutes away so if you have an unexpected problem we can respond quickly. We are part of the LABC network, the only fully national service and have unrivalled technical expertise. With in-depth Building Regulations knowledge, our surveyors will help you find solutions to get the job done quickly and cost-effectively.

Customers trust us to work with you to bring their project in on time, on budget and with all the paperwork in place should they ever decide to sell. We offer free advice even before you submit your application or start your building work. We’re happy to talk about a job long before you start. Early conversations often save time and money. We encourage innovation. If you are doing something new, different or complicated we will work with you and consult with our national partners for advice. There’s no extra cost for this. We even have registers of products, designs and specification details that you can use completely free of charge.

Our fees are competitive and good value. Plan appraisal, advice and site inspections are all included. We provide help and advice and we believe that site visits are important. If you hit a problem then we will be there to help. We are an extra pair of eyes and you can rely on us to back you up. Only a Local Authority can give you the peace of mind of an Approval Notice and a Completion Certificate. We will help you to cut out the red tape. You can talk to our technical support teams about how to make an application over the phone and start work almost straight away.
