We went to BBS initially for Building Control for our latest build near Maidstone, Kent. Being a small design & build company, and dealing with such a large project, we needed the back up of a professional team. So when we realised BBS could also assist with Health & Safety and Environmental matters, it meant we had total back up from one source, which was especially important as the project was our first experience of working to Level 2 of CfSH.
With regards to Health & Safety; we were unsure as to the best way to organise and facilitate our policy and whether we had the correct documents etc. However, following a conversation with BBS, about our requirements, they applied a realistic approach and advice which included information and site visits, giving us the confidence that we were on the right road and looking after everything as required.
We will without hesitation be using BBS on our future projects.

I have worked with various BBS personnel for over 15 years, they are consistently proactive, professional, helpful and their approach to solving problems rather than just saying provide the answer - is second to none.
We regularly recommend BBS.
RLT Architectects find the service and working relationship with BBS Building Control to be one of the most helpful and pragmatic encountered.
Their approach commences with an in principle opinion at the sketch/concept stage that allows the design to develop without complication.
During construction the site visits and meetings with BBS always allow for a flexible approach to reflect the conditions and problem in hand. This enables the project to flow without delay which can sometimes be experienced when using other approaches to the Building Regulations.
We have been using BBS for approximately seven years, during which time we have submitted a variety of projects from extensions to conversions and new builds both in residential and commercial sectors.
The advice you have given has been invaluable, your team is easily reachable and have responded very quickly to queries saving our clients time and money. We particularly note, BBS’s willingness to come on site during the design stage of project and form part of the design team to advise on potential building control issues. We have never received this from local authority nor approved inspectors.
We look forward to working with your practice and will continue to recommend your services to our clients.
London Green Developments have used BBS on several projects over the last two years, and have always found their team to be responsive and professional, offering constructive advice through design development and willing to take a pro-active role in the team. Fees are highly competitive, queries are always swiftly addressed, and we anticipate continuing to use the widening range of BBS services throughout future projects.
We are using BBS as Building Control consultants on several education sector projects, and have found their service to be helpful, responsive and flexible. We would have no hesitation in recommending them on this basis.
