Booking Your Site Inspection




Complying with the Building Regulations

You have a legal obligation to inform us when work starts on-site and at each stage of construction. This is to ensure that the building work is monitored for compliance with the Building Regulations. Once work has finished on-site in accordance with the Building Regulations you will receive a Completion Certificate.





We have devised a number of convenient ways for you to book your site inspection:


  • Book using our Online Site Inspection Booking Form
