The Stroma Group has announced the launch of a new Approved Inspector brand: Stroma Building Control.
The new brand is being formed from three already established Building Control providers: Approved Design Consultancy, BBS Building Control and Greendoor Building Control. Through the creation of the new brand, Stroma brings together more than three decades of project work and experience in the Building Control sector.
More than 120 qualified Building Control Surveyors and network of 14 regional offices are within the new brand, and Stroma believes that this means its clients can rely on a nationwide Building Control compliance service, delivered at a local level.
The Stroma Group first acquired Greendoor Building Control in late 2015. Further acquisitions of Approved Design Consultancy and BBS Building Control followed in 2016. Over the past two years a detailed programme of integration has progressed to unite the companies into what the company says is one of the largest Private Approved Inspectors across England and Wales.
Steve Lonsdale, Director of Stroma Building Control, said: “Stroma Building Control will be the employer of choice in the sector, providing an enjoyable place to work where staff are supported and respected. We will hold quality at the heart of everything we do and strive to be the leading national private provider of Building Control services in the UK. The service is focused on enhancing the client experience of the regulatory system and adding value at each stage of the process. Clients can trust a reputation built by Approved Design, BBS and Greendoor for efficient, timely and high-quality services delivered by experienced professionals.”
The Stroma Building Control team has a track record across all project types within the construction industry including, amongst other sectors, residential and mixed use. Its advice and support can be provided during the concept and early design phase, through the Initial Notice submission, Plans Appraisal and Site Inspections to the Final Certificate submission at completion. It also delivers full technical support to clients, CPD on all regulations and advice on any changes to those regulations.
The Stroma Group was formed in 2002, and now comprises three divisions which deliver services throughout the RIBA Plan of Work stages. In addition to Building Control, the Group can provide expertise within the fields of Pre-Construction, Building Performance Testing, Building Compliance, Post Construction, Certification & Training, Building Information Modelling and Mobile Software.
