About Us

SHBCC provides the Building Control services for Surrey Heath Borough Council, and we can provide Building Regulations plan approval throughout England and Wales for our "Registered Partners", which allows us to provide a consistent approach.

SHBCC is part of the largest Building Control Service in England and Wales; with approximately 3,000 Surveyors and a 70% market share across all building sectors, domestic and commercial.

We provide advice and assistance to Architects, Agents, Developers, Builders, members of the General Public and other professionals on matters relating to Building Control

On complex or innovative designs, we offer additional technical consultation using the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) national network. This provides design input relating to structural, acoustic, access and energy conservation matters.

Our extensive local knowledge far exceeds that of other Building Control bodies and we have a proven track record that this has resulted in reduced project costs.

We are a non-profit making company, therefore our surveyors have no vested interest.

We have a close working relationship with the local Planning department, Environmental Health, the local Fire Authority & other statutory bodies; resulting in a reduced response time and if needed a quicker resolution.
