Stroma Building Control is one of the UK’s largest private sector building control bodies. We fully understand the importance of compliance and communication at each stage of the building project. Through a collaborative approach with our clients, Stoma’s expertise and comprehensive list of consultancy services can add value to the design and construction process and deliver cost savings across the lifetime of the building.
Stroma Building Control is licensed by the Government to advise on Building Regulations and to approve design and construction. Our credentials are demonstrated by our own accreditation, having gained independent certification of our quality, environmental and health and safety systems to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 requirements. We are part of the Stroma Group, a UK leader in Building Sustainability and Compliance services.
Our comprehensive Building Control service:

Building Control Site Inspections
Our Building Control service is delivered on projects of all sizes across all sectors by fully qualified and experienced staff that support innovation in design, construction methods and interpretation of building regulations. Operating from a national network of offices, we provide consistency in interpretation and approach. Whilst our prime focus is on meeting our clients’ needs, we are committed to raising standards and increasing the level of compliance for the benefit of the construction industry and wider society.
Early involvement in each project is key to a successful build. The knowledge and experience we provide at the pre-planning and pre-tender stages can prove invaluable at design team meetings. Our flexible approach is both proactive and commercially aware. We offer expert advice on all associated acts, legislation and other regulatory, advisory and good practice guidelines affecting developments. Working across all sectors our building control applies a creative, problem solving approach, working alongside either traditional design route or with design and build teams.
Communication is at the core of our approach to help clients assess compliance against the Building Regulations. We aim to provide the link which binds the process of communicating between the Client, Contractor, Designer, Project Manager and your Building Control Surveyor. Our qualified surveyors are based locally to your project for efficiency and availability.
Stroma Building Control is committed to delivering an accessible, collaborative and reactive approach combined with high technical capability. We are an independent, third-party specialist to ensure expert interpretation and a consistent approach to the implementation of Building Regulations. We are not constrained by the timescales laid down for approval at a Local Authority. Our goal is to remove Building Control approval from the developers’ risk management equation.
Our expertise and experience doesn’t end with the practical completion of your project. We provide ongoing advice to building owners and long-term monitoring services until the termination of the asset’s life.
