Coupled with our Mission, they highlight that we are in business for the public good and not purely to make a profit. To become the Building Compliance Consultancy of choice, we recognise that we need to create the right behaviours within our teams. So, our focus is on our people – supporting the investment we make in them to ensure that they achieve their potential and deliver the best possible service on behalf of our clients.

We are owned by and carry out building control services on behalf of eight local authorities in Hertfordshire. Our clients benefit from our solution-led approach and our team of professionally qualified surveyors offer proactive advice and support to help achieve the best possible results.

Help Every Step of the Way

Building regulations can be complex, but there’s no need for them to be daunting. Our Building Control processes have been designed to add value, by reducing unnecessary bureaucracy, delays and costs.

We cover all aspects of building work – from simple extensions and loft conversions for residential customers to large-scale commercial or residential development projects, offering advice and guidance throughout the project.

We have achieved ISO 9001 status and in 2019 were awarded the LABC Warranty Bricks Award as the best local authority partner! Our surveyors have also been recognised nationally  –  as LABC Trainee of the year for 2018, LABC Rising Star for 2019 and LABC Superstar for 2019. Two of our surveyors are on the LABC training panel and on the LABC technical panel.

We celebrate our awards for both HBC and our customers here.

Operating in Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas, our team of qualified surveyors is one of the largest in the area and is on hand to help with all aspects of the build (or renovation), whilst adhering to Health and Safety regulations.
