Inspections

Inspections must be carried out at certain stages of work. These are known as statutory inspections and include the inspection of foundations, damp proof courses, drains, materials under floors, and more.

Other visits are made to check on fire protection, thermal and sound insulation, access for disabled, and stairways, etc.

A final inspection of work is carried out upon completion. Our Building Control surveyor must be notified so any problems can be rectified before the contractor leaves the site.

A Completion Certificate will be issued free of charge. This is a valuable document that may be required when you sell your property.
