What we do and how we do it…

SOCOTEC Building Control

Accessible, collaborative, proactive

As the UK’s leading private sector building control body, we believe that the building control process can add considerable value to the design and construction process.

An accessible, collaborative and proactive approach combined with high technical capability removes compliance risk and provides real build and building lifetime cost savings.

Risk-free compliance

Fire safety legislations

Early involvement

With early involvement at the pre-planning and pre-application stage, our expertise and experience will remove both cost and compliance risk from the design process. Our pro-active relationship with our fire authority partners removes the compliance risk associated with fire safety legislation.

High capability

As well as being the market-leading independent provider of building control we are a recognised authority on all matters of building regulation. Our service is delivered on projects of all sizes across all sectors by fully qualified and experienced staff that support innovation in design, construction methods, and interpretation of building regulations.

Added value

We are focused on providing a measurable return on the investment our clients make in our services. Early involvement allows us to deliver reduced construction and building lifetime costs.

Accessible and reliable service delivery

Our clients are important to us so we ensure that we are available when you need us and that we do what we say we will when we say we will.


We take the time to listen to our clients’ needs and align our experience and expertise to ensure they are met.

Reduced bureaucracy

Our building control process is simple and can be tailored to align with the design and construction process without deadlines or time constraints.

National consistency

Operating from a national network of offices we provide consistency in interpretation and approach via a single point of contact regardless of the location of the project.

Improved standards of health, safety, and sustainability across the built environment

Whilst our prime focus is on meeting our clients’ needs, we are committed to raising standards and increasing the level of compliance for the benefit of the construction industry and wider society. We use our status as market and thought leaders to engage with all stakeholders involved with the development and delivery of building regulations.
