About Assent Building Control Ltd
Assent was founded in 2005 by Richard Batte and John Dilley. The company was born out of a desire to do things differently and to find positive ways to support the development objectives of our clients nationally. We believe building control must facilitate innovation not stifle it. Our name reflects this desire.
The Directors together with our expanding team of more than 50 highly qualified and experienced surveyors understand the changing face of Building Control. We operate from 25 locations around the country ensuring that we can offer a locally based service that can be delivered nationally via a single point of contact for our client.
The inherent complexity of providing a sustainable, accessible and safe built environment makes old fashioned approaches to Building Control redundant. Assent provides a flexible resource for the client and all design team members ensuring that building regulation compliance is integral to the project from inception to completion.
With Planning delays and short development programmes, fundamental design issues such as fire safety, accessible design and energy conservation must be right first time. Assent staff understand these pressures and our reputation is founded on our helpful and responsive service.
Long term relationships are fundamentally important to us and by building strong partnerships word of mouth recommendation has become the cornerstone of our development so far.
