Building Technical Control
Helping ensure compliance and avoid risk on construction projects
Companies carrying out building work today are under pressure to comply with local regulations regarding structural integrity and safety. It is particularly important for them to be able to insure themselves against future risk or defects. Though ten-year insurance policies are generally available, insurance companies are demanding that independent technical controls are carried out to formally measure risk and validate warranties.
What is Technical Building Control?
The main aim of Building Technical Control is to help ensure the structural integrity and safety of new buildings under construction. All parts of construction are covered, from foundations, flooring, walls and roofing to installations. Compliance with relevant regulations is monitored, from design phase through to building completion, by conducting design reviews and on-site inspections. As well as helping to meet local regulations, other necessary specifications may also be taken into account such as specific insurance company requests.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Does Technical Control involve a complete check of all construction elements?
No, audits are carried out on a sampling basis. This has been proven to be an effective and cost-effective way to identify non-conformities.
Does Technical ControI also cover insurance of the construction site itself?
No, this only covers the future risks relating to construction, once a building has been completed. Companies still have to take out insurance on on-site building work. The two issues are separate and unrelated.
