Local Authority Building Control

Xtenda has received a very warm welcome from the Local Authority Building Control, LABC Partner Authority Scheme.

Our business is now registered with the scheme which means that all local authorities in England and Wales will accept the decisions of our chosen Partner Authority. We also get a consistent interpretation of the Building Regulations on our projects, a single point of contact at the Council Offices, much less paperwork, fewer queries on our excellent work and faster, streamlined invoicing – all at no extra cost to our customers.

There are other benefits too:

  • We can now  use the LABC ‘Partner’ logo on our letterhead, marketing or other technical documents, in printed or electronic format. By using the logo, other professionals recognise that we have been officially approved to use this streamlined approach.
  • As an LABC Partner, we have access to LABC training courses and seminars (usually exclusive to LABC members). LABC Training covers  CPD for professionals, update training on new or changes Building Regulations and topical issues. We also have in-house training on Building Control topics that can be scheduled at our own venue for our employees.
  • As last year, we can once again enter the LABC Building Excellence Awards and even make it through to the National Awards as a finalist!

With work projects secured throughout 2017, there are bright times ahead for Xtenda.
