Book a Building Control Inspection

Once you have made an application for building regulations approval, you will need to arrange site inspections at various stages throughout the work.  The purpose of the inspections are to make sure that the person carrying out the works complies with building regulations before any work is covered up.

You, or your builder, must tell us:

  • when you start the work
  • when you dig the foundations
  • when you pour the foundation concrete
  • when you fit a damp-proof course
  • when you lay and compress the site hardcore (for example, with a roller)
  • when you lay the concrete subfloor
  • when you lay the drainage system (both before, and after backfilling)
  • before covering any sound insulation measures
  • before covering any above ground structural elements
  • when the work is finished
  • any other stages the surveyor on-site asks you to tell us about

If we do not inspect important work before it is covered up, we have the power to have it opened up so we can see them.

How do I book?

To book a site inspection with one of our surveyors, please call one of the following offices:

Most inspections take place during office hours (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday except on public and bank holidays).

Please book before 10am if you need an inspection carried out on the same day, and we’ll try to visit your property that day.

Details you will be asked for:
  • your reference number
  • you full name
  • your full address including postcode
  • your contact number
  • what the inspection is for i.e. foundations / commencement, hardcore, damp proof courses, drainage, roof timbers, completion etc.
  • your preferred date and time for inspection
