Inspection of building work
To make sure that building work meets the building regulations, we carry out a number of inspections.
When you have a planned start date, you should let us know, giving us at least two working days of notice. At the start of the project a building control surveyor may call, they will introduce themselves, discuss the project and answer any questions you may have. This inspection is the first of up to 10 inspection stages. These stages of inspection and the period of notice you need to give us is listed below. This list of inspections, although useful, is not an exhaustive list and inspections may be required in addition to those stated below.
|Stage of work||Notice required|
|Excavation of foundations prior to concreting||1 day|
|Foundations concrete||1 day|
|Building over the damp-proof course||1 day|
|Over-site before concreting||1 days|
|Laying drains prior to back filling||1 day|
|Drains test after back filling||5 days (after)|
|Installation of structural members (floor joists, roof structure, steel beams etc)||1 day|
|Occupation (if before completion)||5 days|
