Building Control in London fulfills the purpose of being both a duty and a service. Our duty is to oversee the City of London's function as set out in the Building Act 1984 and other relevant building legislation. Our aim is to provide a quality service to our customers and to work alongside designers and contractors to achieve compliance with the regulations by giving guidance and assistance at the earliest stages of the design. Our customers have found our pre application advice invaluable to bringing added value to their projects from the outset.
As part of our service we ensure that building work compliues with the appropriate standards, that the health and safety of people in or about our buildings is not compromised and that the welfare and convenience of people with disabilities are catered for satisfactorily. Almost all the new buildings under construction in the Square Mile are being serviced by our highly skilled and experienced Building Control Surveyors providing a level of service that is second to none.
