Working with local authorities across the county allows Devon Building Control Partnership to offer more choice and higher quality services to its clients

Devon Building Control Partnership provides Building Control Services across three Local Authorities, consisting of Teignbridge and South Hams District Councils and West Devon Borough Council. The area covered also includes the Dartmoor National Park Authority.

As well as serving these Districts the Partnership works in close collaboration with Plymouth, Cornwall, Torbay and other Local Authorities in the South West to deliver a consistent and coordinated service.

The partnership encompasses Dartmoor National Park, covers an area of 1,068 square miles, with over 82 miles of coastline and services a population of 257,000 people.

Highly experienced

The Partnership is made up of a team of 18 experienced Surveyors including Chartered Surveyors, Building Engineers, Fire Engineers and Energy Assessors. By working closely with the building industry, our professional surveyors and engineers ensure that ‘buildings are designed to comply’, through careful selection of building materials and through our inspection programme to ensure that construction work meets the necessary standards of conservation, health and safety.

With our depth of knowledge and our in-house expertise, we can advise on a whole range of building activities, from soil contamination, sustainability, accessibility, fire engineering and local geology as well as the normal building control subjects.

The Partnership offers a comprehensive range of services, giving our clients more choice and a high-quality service which suits your individual needs. We add value to the building project and are an essential member of the ‘Design Team’.

The Partnership will provide a packaged service allowing easy and necessary access and contact with the site team. A records log or inspection regime will then be agreed for each stage of work requiring inspection. Records will then be kept by Building Control of each stage of work allowing a continuity and understanding of all parties in the construction process.

We are a not-for-profit organisation providing excellent value for money.
