Building Control for Commercial Projects

In the main, our work is mainly in the commercial and industrial sector and we have vast experience of warehouse projects, office developments and fit-outs of new and existing properties.

We specialise in effective negotiation with the Fire & Rescue service not only in building control but also in the workplace.

For more information, please visit our Commercial page.

Building Control for Residential Properties

    Building control for domestic properties is now available from OnSite through Architects, Surveyors and other professional designers. If you do not have a professional to design your project, we can arrange that for you too at reasonable prices.

The Team

    The Building Control Surveyors employed by OnSite are all professionally qualified and commercially aware. View our Personnel page for more detail.

    Building Regulations will be applied with common sense and very often a choice of methods to achieve compliance will be offered.

    Although central Government make Building Regulations, OnSite Associates are responsible for interpretation and implementation of those requirements. This is done in a professional and integrated manner.

Whatever the requirement, OnSite is here to advise you.
