Thank you so much for your unfaltering attention and support to my mother’s property and assisting me as much as you did.

I really am most grateful and relieved the sale can progress through to completion tomorrow.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. I look forward to many more years of successful partnership.

Thanks again, Scott.

Thank you very much for your help throughout the build process. As complete beginners to project managing something this size County Building Control was an invaluable part of the process. Communication, availability and general service was great throughout and I look forward to recommending your services to others.

Thank you

From our first initial enquiry right through to the issuing of our completion certificate, County Building Control have given us a fairly priced service,  prompt and efficient stage inspections, and always a polite, efficient and cheerful approach.

As a developer the planning and building process can become a complicated process. Working with a local building control independent company is the way forward. CBC and their team are professional, fair, knowledgeable and always go above and beyond on every project. After working with one of the Directors for many years I can honestly say that we would never even contemplate going elsewhere. Their systems, communication and care for developers and clients is outstanding and I give them a 5 star easily!! Do not look elsewhere, give them a call!
