What we do

As Approved Inspectors, licensed by the Construction Industry Council and with full PI and PL insurance, we are authorized to carry out building control work in England and Wales for commercial and domestic projects.

We take on the full responsibility for the administration of your building regulation application, from design and statutory consultations, through to checking deposited information, submitting the Initial Notice to the local authority, on-site inspection of your project. When the work is complete we will issue a final certificate confirming that the works are in compliance with the building regulations.

All our work is quoted in advance, with fees tailored to your needs. For more information about our Approved Inspector Services call us on 0117 929 7799 or email info@buckleylewis.com
