Why Active Building Control?

As building control specialists, we’re more pro-active than ordinary providers.
That means:

  • Getting involved in early design
  • Solving problems before they cost money
  • Providing realistic solutions

We’ll be there when we say, back when we’re needed and we’ll care about your project as much as you do.

We are not your regular building control experts.

Why Active?

We don’t measure our success by the 8,000+ approvals we’ve completed; we measure it by the number of builders and architects that choose to work with us time after time.
