Inspections and the building over protocol
When a development is underway, a building control body is usually required to inspect the site to ensure that all work complies with certain building standards (outlined in H4 Building Regulations). Developers can choose whether to use their Local Authority's Building Control Department or an independent Approved Inspector to carry out these site inspections.
We have formed an agreement or 'Protocol' with a number of building control bodies (Local Authority Building Control Departments and independent Approved Inspectors) that when they're on site inspecting new development, they can also inspect and if appropriate, approve any 'build overs' on our behalf.
Inspectors who are working within this Protocol will also escalate any concerns or problems they find with a potential build over, so that we can offer developers the appropriate advice.
