    Inspection of Sites

    The current advice from CICAIR is to carry on inspecting as usual however at Align Building Control we have taken the decision not to carryout completion inspections to occupied premises.

    Following the relevant advice from the Government we plan to avoid all non-urgent travel and contact, however we are committed to continuing to offer you a high level of service.

    We are continually monitoring the situation and we are making the appropriate contingency plans. All surveyors are homeworking.

    We would ask that you continue to notify us of stages of work that require inspection. At that point we will assess if the inspection could effectively be carried out by remote means such as photographs or video conferencing.

    In respect of visits to domestic premises, our surveyors announce themselves and then ideally continue to inspect the work unaccompanied, or if necessary, at a distance of at least 2 metres from any person.

    Our surveyors will not visit any premises where any person on site is self-isolating and we ask that you advise us as soon as possible.

    On larger sites our surveyors will utilise the hand-washing facilities on arrival and departure and will carry out inspections whilst maintaining a distance of 2 metres from any person. It is possible that this approach may necessitate temporarily shutting down parts of the construction process during the inspection.

    If, following an inspection you become aware that you, or someone the surveyor interacted with has contracted Covid-19, please contact us immediately. Contact details can be found on our website, please click on the link to source.

    We thank you again for your understanding during this challenging time for us all.

    What people say about our services

    Align Building Control were used for the loft conversion, extension and refurbishment of our house. The surveyor was always available to help with any queries and gave technical advice by phone, email or site visit, very professional. The process of gaining approval was made much easier by their availability, technical assistance and flexible approach

    We would recommend Align for any projects

    It feels like Align are part of the team helping you to complete a building project safely and to a high standard rather than an inspector seeking to criticise and find fault.’
