What people are saying about us

Ball and Berry Ltd have a loyal, satisfied, and broad range of valued customers and contacts. Cassidy + Ashton Architects have worked with Ball and Berry for a number of years now during which time we have received a high quality, professional service. The willingness to contribute to the design process, particularly at the key early stages of a project, offers an added value that sets this company apart from other approved inspectors.

We used Ball and Berry Ltd for the Building Control service on a domestic project in Lytham St Annes. Throughout the construction stage of the project they took a pragmatic approach to compliance with the Building Regulations, and we were able to proceed without delay as they visited site as soon as we notified them at the critical stages. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ball and Berry Ltd

Ball and Berry have been providing an Approved Inspector service for Adamson Construction for a number of years now. As a company Adamson Construction primarily construct extensions and convert garages & loft space into habitable accommodation. We find Ball and Berry to be extremely professional. They provide flexible and pragmatic solutions in ensuring that what we construct complies with the relevant building regulations. Ball and Berry are only a phone call away and over the years have become a valued member of the pre-build and installation team “

Most recently we have worked with Ball and Berry on two large residential extension and remodelling schemes which require a great deal of design input at concept stage. Ball and Berry have been exceptional in providing design input and plan checking at the earliest stages of scheme design which have allowed us to identify potential issues at later stages of the project. Ball and Berry act as an integral member of the design team, ensuring compliance and providing practical advice at all times. The plan check stage is swift, concise, and enables us to begin work on site quickly with the confidence that the scheme is compliant with all statutory regulations and requirements. Ball and Berry are always on hand to handle calls from the design team and the contractor. This ensures progress on site isn’t interrupted when issues are raised and ultimately saves our clients time and money. Private building control is sometimes viewed as being more expensive that LABC. We have found Ball and Berry are competitive but more importantly the quality of service saves our clients thousands of pounds on site

I have used quite a few Building Control services over the years, but I have found that Ball & Berry offer the best service. They are approachable, easy to get hold of, and are able to offer detailed technical advice in a short amount of time. This has meant that I have been able to get a design solution quicker, saving me and the clients time and money. I would recommend using Ball & Berry, and I intend to carry on working with them in the forseeable future

Ball and Berry have been providing Russells Construction with a Building Control service for a number of years on various projects across the country. We find the flexibility that Ball and Berry offer our team to be a great help in today’s fast moving building industry, where things might need changing and decisions need to be made very quickly. Ball and Berry’s service doesn’t complicate the whole process of complying with the Building Regulations, which is a great help for keeping projects to a budget and on program.

Having worked with Ball & Berry over many years now we can confidently recommend their services on all scales of projects. As a director of PJH Architectural Services my focus is very much based on client satisfaction and ensuring an excellent level of service. We use Ball & Berry as a partnering approved inspector and therefore they oversee circa 80% of our existing clients. From initial consultation, to submission and compliance approval right through to on-site inspections, we find the level of service and correspondence admirable. Whether it be at director level, administration or site level, their hands-on positive and responsive attitude is something that we can confidently rely on for each and every project.
