Find out a bit more about one of our clients.

Company Profile

London Building Control Ltd, is a Corporate Approved Inspector and was incorporated in 2006 to focus on building work in London.  Since we began the company has grown considerably and now operates across the UK from the south coast to the north of England, with office in London, Exeter, Manchester, Welwyn Garden City and Chichester.

Who we are

Our team consists of qualified, professional surveyors, engineers and other construction consultants with many years of experience.  We have grown from a small team in 2006, to now being considered as one of the larger approved inspectors with multiple offices throughout the country.


We are here to meet the specific needs of our clients for both commercial and residential sectors.  We offer a professional service, fast and efficient, as an alternative to those traditionally provided by Local Authority Building Control.


What we offer

As an Approved Inspector, it is not out duty to act as a site agent (overseeing the contractor throughout the duration of the work) nor to act as a consultant, but rather to carry out periodic inspections of the work to ensure that, as far as can be reasonably ascertained, the work complies with the Building Regulations.  Therefore, clients are strongly advised to employ their own architect, agent or consultant to oversee the work on their behalf.

The rooftop restaurant is described as ‘one of its kind for the area’ and will provide a ‘unique dining experience for guests and visitors’, while the basement of the hotel would provide spa and fitness facilities, including a sauna, steam room and gymnasium.
