Building Control in Essex

In 1984 the government of England and Wales amended the Building Act to allow for the creation of Approved Inspectors. An Approved Inspector or Corporate Approved Inspector is someone that can offer Building Control Services as an alternative to using the Local Authority Building Control. To do so that company must firstly be approved by the Construction Industry Council as have suitable systems and qualifications in place.

Greendoor is one of those Approved Inspector companies. We provide a friendly refreshing service, tailored to help our clients achieve compliance with the Building Act and Building Regulations. We are able to provide this service across England and Wales.

The aim of the Building Act 1984 and Building Regulations is to safe guard the interests of the public in general and those people located in and round buildings. The regulations extend beyond simple things like construction and electrical works to consider relatively newer things such power consumption, water usage, heating, ventilation and thermal insulation among many other things. Whether the work consists of an Extension, New dwelling, Office fit out or loft conversion plans or modification often needs the be assesses by an approved building inspectors or Local Authority Building Control. Once complete it is important to obtain a copy of the Building Control Final certificate as this will aid the future sale of the building.
