Why is Building Control in St John's Wood Important?

Building Control in St Johns is important to ensure that the building or structure work that is being completed complies with the building regulations and standards to protect people’s health and safety. 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

Throughout the course of the building work being completed Building Control surveyors will make regular visits to the site to guarantee that the construction work is on the right track with meeting the building regulations. They will be there to offer advice and answer questions about the requirements.

Every building project is different and no matter how large or small, All Building Control will be there to talk through the whole process. We will work together with property owners, builders, and designers to find a solution and help to make decisions about the designs to meet the requirements. This will usually happen before the building work has started to ensure there are no delays throughout the process.

There could be fines and prosecutions if your building or structure work doesn’t meet the building regulations. If there is consistent offence it can also result in legal action. This is why it is so important to hire us here at All Building Control so we can help with all the building and construction regulations.

Once the building work has been completed there will be a final inspection to check that the work completed meets the requirements. Once the surveyors are satisfied with the work, the property owners are then issued a final certificate which they can present to solicitors and agents when selling a property and to mortgage lenders and property insurers.
