Why choose Ball & Berry…?

We understand that dealing with the Building Regulations can at times be a frustrating experience and our aim is to help guide you through the building control process in a professional, non-bureaucratic manner.

From the initial project conception through to final completion of works our team of chartered surveyors are on hand to help provide a consistent interpretation of how to achieve cost effective compliance.

We are also happy to offer a design team approach which can help add value to a project by highlighting areas of non-compliance at the earliest opportunity.

We offer a highly responsive service to help ensure that your project does not suffer any unnecessary delays. You will find our dedicated team of surveyors to be approachable, accessible and available when you need them.
Your project will be headed up by an RICS Chartered Building Control Surveyor who will have a wealth of experience in dealing with the building regulations in both the public and private sector.

Don’t just take our word for it, here is 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”.
“We have worked with Ball and Berry for a number of years and have always found their services timely, professional and cost effective. I recommend them to all of our clients and enjoy a close working relationship with them”.

“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”.
