Partnering: the way forward
Local Authority Building Control (LABC) has more than 2,500
successful national partnerships with construction companies and
professional advisers. But what is an LABC Partnership and
how can you benefit?
LABC partnering enables companies or advisers to 'partner'
with their preferred Local Authority. Your organisation can
choose to have a national or regional link to LABC. This will
provide you with a single point of contact for your plan
examination and advice to ensure all your projects are regulatory
In each individual area, site inspections will be carried out
by the Local Authority in close liaison with your Partner
Authority. With a Building Control Surveyor dedicated to your
team every time, you can guarantee certainty and consistency across
all aspects of design including pre-application advice, plans
examination and all the necessary consultations, including the Fire
Service. For companies that build or design nationwide,
partnering can help to simplify and speed up the building
process. The additional charge for this service?
