Benefits of this scheme include:

  • Helping to simplify and speed up the building process generating substantial savings in time and money
  • A dedicated professional building control surveyor from the preferred local authority offers pre-application advice on all projects no matter where they are in the country
  • The pre-application advice approach ensures that any issues can be resolved early in the design process and will eliminate the need for expensive corrections later in the construction phase
  • The single point of contact provided through this scheme results in a consistent approach to plan appraisal
  • Any local conditions, site-specific information and necessary consultations are investigated on behalf of the client
  • Site inspections will be carried out by your Local Authority Building Control Team benefiting from local knowledge and contacts
  • In summary, the client benefits from a single point of contact, consistent approach, improved pre-application service and still benefits from local knowledge, excellent liaison with other services such as Fire, Police and Environmental Health
