Building Control

Building Control Resources

Our staff are trained in the latest regulations and are well versed in designing and advising on schemes that offer the best compliance without unnecessary expense, and our Project Managers can run the whole process for you.

Early consultation with our retained building control inspectors on the viability of your proposed scheme allows for cost-effective designs right from the start, getting provisional approval at the design stage, and understanding how to minimise expensive fire rating requirements through thoughtful design. We can often resubmit several alternative plans to get the right combination of compliance and cost-effectiveness.

Leave it to our project managers to work with the approved inspectors to design a compliant but economical scheme. Our service includes submitting the application forms, CAD drawings, plans and calculations.

Post-Build Sign-Off

This includes providing all the detailed drawings and often extensive paperwork for the project as well as providing engineers calculations where required.

During site inspections we can represent you and your interests on-site with Building Control Inspectors or Fire Officers if necessary.

We complete the job, getting your full sign-off, and will advise you throughout the project of any other amendments required through other suppliers, for example incumbent fire alarm providers.

It might surprise you that you don’t have to use your local authority for sign-off. For that reason, NSI retains independent building control inspectors who know and understand our designs, can provide prompt attention, and give a consistent interpretation of the Building Control Regulations anywhere in the country.
