The future of building control is changing, and we need you to help us deliver our building control service to meet demand and the associated challenges.

Who we are and what we do

We’re helping to change the future of building control by offering an alternative approach: we have all the same features and characteristics of a local authority but with a much wider and more diverse range of services because we operate on a national scale.

With the huge demands placed on the future prosperity of the UK, building control will play a pivotal role in helping the country to build back better and safer. We’re using technology, innovation, and domain knowledge to improve services and deliver savings and building safety.

Our teams are making significant differences to communities and areas, making them safer and improving amenities so local authorities can focus on doing the best for their citizens.
