Hear from our Stroma Building Control Directors

Stroma Building Control launched on 1st October 2018 following a detailed integration plan. The new division of the Stroma Group has brought together three established Approved Inspectors, Approved Design Consultancy, BBS Building Control and Greendoor Building Control and Specialist Services, to create a market-leader in CICAIR approved Building Control services.

Stroma Building Control is led by an experienced Senior Management Team. Here’s what they have to say about the launch of Stroma Building Control.



Steven Lonsdale – Stroma Building Control Director (formerly Greendoor Director)

Greendoor became a part of the Stroma Group to join a dynamic, forward-thinking business that is looking to deliver the future of Building Control. Our skill sets, expertise and full national coverage, alongside the experience of Approved Design and BBS enables us to offer a complete service as Stroma Building Control. As a single, dedicated consultant, we can help deliver our clients’ expectations of speed, minimised costs and quality.

Factoring the integration around our staff, clients and the Construction Industry Council was a challenge. However, each of the Approved Inspectors has individually maintained an excellent level of customer service to our clients, keeping them informed throughout the process and carrying out national roadshows to support and reassure them.

The launch is only the beginning of Stroma Building Control and we intend to expand the company over the coming years. We hope to continue to support and enhance the skills and progression of our staff whilst adding new layers of quality for our clients, safe in the knowledge that they are appointing the leading Building Control provider in England and Wales.



Dave Allen – Stroma Building Control Director

What a journey! Through the many ups and downs we’ve now reached the point at which Stroma Building Control can be introduced to the construction industry. The hard work and dedication shown by our staff and clients has been remarkable. Our Building Control team have coped admirably with ‘business as usual’ work in conjunction with the grand task of integration. It’s exciting to see what comes next.



Steve Hilditch – Quality Director (former Director of Approved Design)

It’s time to look to the future of our company within the Stroma Group. Clients from all corners of England and Wales will now be able to count on a nationally recognised Approved Inspector. We have the talent, resources and potential to deliver something very special within our industry. It’s incredibly exciting that we can now get started.



Martin Watton – Technical Director (former Director of Approved Design)

A big thank you is owed to every single member of staff who has contributed to the realisation of Stroma Building Control. If we all take a step back, you can see what a truly compelling proposition Stroma Building Control represents to the market. 14 offices, more than 120 surveyors, regional admin hubs and support from our talented colleagues across the rest of the Stroma Group. No other Approved Inspector can do what we do.



Ian O’Connor – Operations Director

I’d like to thank the people who have helped us from around the Stroma Group at various times during this process. From Integration, to Finance, Marketing, Software, IT, HR and the Operations teams – hundreds of people have made some form of contribution to the creation of Stroma Building Control. It’s a great start for the new division and has given us a fantastic platform to grow more in the future.



Adam Jarvis – Director of Compliance (former Director of BBS)

We became a part of the Stroma Group to develop a large but customer-focused business in the Building Control sector. Stroma Building Control brings together BBS’ 17 years’ experience, large geographical coverage and reputation for high levels of customer service and Stroma’s strong branding and high profile in the industry. As a unified division, Stroma Building Control brings together a number of different systems and working practices that each company has developed over the years, meaning we can rely on a large pool of experience and expertise throughout the company.

We have made many changes internally but clients will still receive the same great service and will now benefit from a large and consistent Building Control provider who is able to cross Local Authority boundaries and gives a consistent and speed response on technical issues.
