Traditional construction to high rise developments - we can help

Cost-effective solutions, right from the start

It's important that your designs are right first time to save you the effort and cost of reworking them. That's why our teams go the extra mile to work with your designers to problem solve at an early stage.

Co-ordinating your compliance

Your NHBC surveyor will make sure that Building Control is fully co-ordinated with our inspection service. This means your homes are handed over promptly.

Consistent interpretation

We provide consistent interpretation of Building Regulations throughout England and Wales. This gives you confidence that your designs will be accepted nationwide. We also offer a Type Approval service where we can approve a repeat design, building system or feature to speed up subsequent projects. Please talk to our Customer Services team for more information.

How we work with you

Every one of your projects is different, so using a service that is flexible enough to match your circumstances is critical. We will work with you to make our service exactly match your needs.
