Local Authority Building Control (LABC)

LABC is the national organisation representing local authority building control departments in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Through our association with LABC we are able to offer:

LABC Partner Authority Scheme

This scheme is designed to help companies that operate in multiple locations and deal with many local authorities. It enables a company or adviser to have a one-to-one working relationship with a preferred local authority for all aspects of design, plans examination and pre-application advice. The site inspections are carried out by the local authority where each project is carried out.

LABC Registered details

LABC Registered Details enable developers, architects, designers, technical specifies and contractors to register or use existing design details to minimise the building control checking and approvals process.  Like the previous scheme, LABC Registered Details enables all local authority building control surveyors to share technical details and to recognise the building control decisions made by others in the LABC network.

This means that once a 'Registration' has been given through one local authority it will be recognised by all LABC surveyors in England and Wales.

Warranties and insurance

Unfortunately things sometimes go wrong, for example a builder stops trading or the work is not to the standard you expected. In these cases it can be reassuring to have insurance cover to fall back on.
