Why is Building Control in Knightsbridge Important?

Building Control surveyors check that building work complies with the building regulations and standards to protect people’s safety and health. Building Control surveyors check all aspects of construction, including but not limited to:

  • foundations
  • damp-proofing
  • structural issues
  • insulation
  • heating
  • the accessibility of a building
  • fire protection and means of escape in case of fire

Regular site visits from Building Control surveyors during building work helps you guarantee that construction work is on the right track with the building regulations. Surveyors are there to offer you and your builder advice and guidance on meeting the required standards.

With any project, no matter how large or small, Building Control teams work with property owners, builders and designers who use their professional skills and experience to find solutions, make decisions about the design and specification of buildings and structures, often before the construction work begins.

If your building works or structures have not been approved by Building Control, the company or person executing your construction work could be prosecuted and fined if the work doesn’t meet building regulations. Additionally, serious and persistent failure to meet the building standards can also result in legal action.

After the final inspection of building work, the property owners are issued a certificate demonstrating the surveyor is satisfied with the work inspected and complies with the building regulations. This is an important document used by solicitors and agents to sell your property, mortgage lenders, and property insurers.
