Building Control

As a trusted Approved Inspector, our Building Control Surveyors have extensive experience across a range of sectors, including education, healthcare, industrial buildings, leisure, and office buildings.

We offer a complete Building Control service, assisting with the early days of design, right through to satisfactory completion.

Our Steps to Building Regulation Approval

1. Fee quotation including pre-submission advice and guidance

We are on hand to provide pre-submission advice and guidance free of charge.

2. Appointment confirmed upon acceptance of quotation

Once you have confirmed our appointment by email or letter, you will be given the contact details for your dedicated Project Manager, who will be your key point of contact throughout the approval process.

3. Submission of Initial Notice

We register the project with the Local Council through the submission of an Initial Notice. You will receive a copy of this, along with your individually tailored Ball & Berry service plan.

4. Assessment of submitted plans and details

We will carry out an assessment of the design and provide feedback on compliance with the 2010 Building Regulations.

5. Relevant consultations

When necessary, we will consult with relevant statutory bodiessuch as the Fire Service or Water Authorityregarding your project.

6. Inspection of works in progress

Subject to correct notification, Ball & Berry will carry out site inspections at critical stages of work, which will be highlighted in your service plan. We will complete regular site reports to keep you up to date.

7. Certificates and information required at completion

We oversee all certification. The majority of projects will require certificates to be issued and provided to Ball & Berry at completion of work.

8. Issue of Final Certificate

This will be issued upon satisfactory completion of work and provision of all necessary information. Do not forget to request your final inspection when the works are approaching completion, and ideally before your contractor leaves site.
