Our services

We will work closely with you to ensure you have the help you need to achieve building regulations approval from the start. Our surveyors will integrate themselves as part of your team, whether that is with you and your builder in the case of a small project, or as part of a wider team of professionals on larger commercial projects.

While most tradesmen have the best intentions, sadly, rogue traders do exist and poor quality work can be devastating for you and your property. In these circumstances, our legal powers of enforcement provide a valuable first line of defence. New Forest District Council Building Control are the only BC service provider in the district who has legal powers to enforce the regulations, giving you peace of mind. We also work with the council's trading standards service in these cases.
