We are delighted to announce that from 16th December Dacorum Borough Council’s building control department will merge with Hertfordshire Building Control (HBC). From that date, HBC will be providing its full range of services in the Dacorum Council area. In addition to building control compliance, plans assessments and site inspections this includes: warranty, air, and acoustic testing, SAP calculations, party wall surveys and specialist services; for example consultancy for high-risk residential building projects. The merged organisation has 48 surveyors, 36 of whom have professional qualifications and 18 of these surveyors have achieved the LABC highest level examination in managing high-risk residential buildings.
Sally Marshall, Chief Executive of Dacorum Borough Council said that: ‘We have chosen to join with Hertfordshire Building Control not just for their wide range of services but also because they are a resilient organisation who prides itself on the quality of its service. They have achieved ISO 9001 status and have just been awarded the LABC Warranty Bricks Award as the best local authority partner. Their surveyors have also won a range of national individual awards and sit on the LABC training panel and on the LABC technical panel. It is for these reasons that we have chosen to join with them confident in the knowledge that they will be able to provide the support and the consistent quality of service our customers require to ensure that their projects achieve compliance.’
This is a fantastic end to a very successful year and we are very much looking forward to working with our many partner organisations in the Dacorum area to support residents there achieve Building Regulations compliance.
