Hertfordshire Building Control

We are a dynamic, forward-thinking organisation retaining the ethos of public service and transparent values. We’re customer-focused delivering first-class building control services with safety and compliance at the forefront of what we do.


Hertfordshire Building Control leads the building compliance process on domestic homes and commercial building projects. We provide direction and advice from the very beginning of a building project through to its completion. Ensuring the building is compliant with the Building Regulations, is structurally sound, is safe to use and is energy efficient. We do this through our service of consultations, plans assessments and site inspections.

We have a reputation for outstanding customer service which is achieved because we are lucky enough to employ talented and committed people.  In return we aim to be a top-rated employer and offer an excellent benefits package and a professional but relaxed working environment, where our people are given exceptional development and advancement opportunities.

Aligned to this we have developed a career pathway which gives clarity as to how individuals can progress within Hertfordshire Building Control and the rewards they can expect as they do so.

Whereas knowledge and experience are important we place a great deal of emphasis on values believing that people who share our values and have a passion for looking after our customers can learn the more technical aspects of the role.

You will enjoy the support of a multi-disciplined professional team but be given the autonomy and responsibility to make your mark in a growing and successful company.
