Our history

Capitalising on their experience of local authority building control and fire safety, Geoff and Nick saw an opportunity to develop a building control service offering a tailored solution. As Approved Inspectors Buckley-Lewis was developed to offer a private sector alternative to building compliance approval other than local authority for a range of clients.

By combing both building control services alongside fire safety risk assessment, clients have a single point of contact.  This allows us maximum flexibility to respond to changes within the design and provide current and relevant advice. 

We are rightly proud that in our 16 years of trading, neither clients or ourselves, have had an insurance claim made against us for projects in respect of the building regulations.

Our mission

At Buckley-Lewis we have a founding principle of providing a pro-active 'risk-based' service. Our mission is to work with clients to provide a range of solutions that will guarantee the safety of the building and all those who use it.

As a small practice we have a reputation for providing a pro-active 'risk based' service, that is cost effective and offers consistent advice to achieve a solution.

Our dedicated team will apply their extensive knowledge to unlock solutions that give the greatest degree of flexibility to ensure compliance. We will review the entire building and advise on all aspects including accessibility issues and identify any fire risks. As part of our service we will regularly inspect the site and liaise with contractors, designers and other consultants involved in the project.

Our fees

We offer a transparent fee structure which is based upon an initial assessment of the overall scheme and complexity of the project so that we can tailor it to your specific requirement. When preparing a quote, we will consider the following:

  • location of the works
  • the project programme and proposed length of works
  • The experience and knowledge of the developer and those contracted
  • What inspection regime we need to adhere to
  • Our attendance at meetings
  • The project administration
