About Us

We are Building Consents Ltd, Approved Inspectors, but more commonly known as Building Control.

Established in 2010 we cover North West England and Wales.

We aim to provide a same day quote and most of our surveyor appointments are the next day


At Building Consents, we are proud to provide support for individuals and construction companies making sure that new buildings are compliant and safe. Our private building control inspectors focus on your most critical issue: ensuring that your project complies with the Building Regulations. While the building remains your design, we will check the structure and safety, energy conservation, and access features for you.


We provide an alternative to obtaining building regulations approval from a local authority. Approved Inspectors are the only Building Control Bodies to be approved, independently monitored, and regulated by CICAIR under the Building Act 1984 to carry out building control work in England and Wales. Approved Inspectors registered with CICAIR Ltd are qualified to undertake building control work in accordance with Part II of the Building Act 1984 and the building (Approved Inspectors etc.) Regulations 2010.

Building Control is a misnomer. Rather than control, we are guided by a common goal for developers, architects, and contractors – to help them design and construct buildings that are beautiful, functional, and safe.


First, we undertake a thorough plan check to make sure you meet the requirements and, if necessary, consult with the fire service and water authority. If you have a complex project and have hired experts in fire engineering or acoustics for instance, we let them do their job but can add value to the project by ensuring their work is recognised as part of the overall Building Regulations compliance.


Next, we inspect the building on site. At key stages we’ll come out and ensure your work complies with the latest regulations. We’re not a clerk of works and cannot see every element but by spot checks at the right moment. By looking at your methods of construction and overall approach we can be reassured that the final project is compliant. If we spot anything wrong we’ll tell you straight away and work with you to make sure problems don’t re-occur.


By being part of the overall design and construction process we can help you to make sure your buildings are safe and healthy for future occupiers. We will also consult with you, so you know which building regulations you should pay extra attention to. Learn more about our private building control inspectors who can assist you with your project.


We are proud to provide support for architects, developers and contractors and our experienced team focuses on your most critical issue: ensuring your project complies with the Building Regulations and is safe. With over a decade of working at the highest professional level, you are in safe hands. Our dedicated team of plan checkers are all experienced, qualified Building Control professionals managed centrally by our Technical Director. They are always available for your technical questions, no matter how big or small.


At Building Consents Head Office We pride ourselves on our quick responses to your enquires, questions, quotes and site inspection requests whether it be on the phone, via email or a text message. We aim to have 90% of our inspections booked in with 24 hours and most of our quotes turned around within the hour (Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays)
