1. LABC Partner Authority Scheme

Our partner authority scheme is shared by all local authority building control teams in England and Wales. You can choose to work with any local authority building control surveyor to undertake all pre-application and design work, regardless of the project's geographical location; in some circumstances and where travel permits, that same surveyor can undertake your site surveying work too.

All types of organisations join our partner authority scheme ranging from large corporate clients to small and medium-sized enterprises, they benefit hugely from having a dedicated building control surveyor who is able to answer their questions.

Your account manager will liaise with local authority building control colleagues at the project location to discuss site-specific issues such as drainage, contamination and liaison with the local fire service. We also work closely with Northern Ireland and Scotland to provide liaison and account management.
