• Our function as an Approved Inspector is to take such steps as are reasonable to be satisfied within the reasonable limits of professional skill and care that the applicable requirements of the Building Regulations are complied with. Although inspections of work are not a legal requirement they are undertaken to enable Gateway Building Control to meet its function.
• Remote inspection techniques may be used as an alternative to on-site surveyor inspection, such as photographs, video or other remote media.
• Gateway Building Control reserve the right to request whatever tests are deemed necessary to demonstrate compliance with the applicable requirements of the building regulations.
• For some larger/more complex commercial projects additional inspections to those shown above may be required to enable Gateway Building Control to meet it's function as detailed above.
Please note, Building Regulations applications must commence works onsite within three years of submission of application.
