We are looking to recruit bright, new talent into the industry, to help us shape the future of building control

About Us

Building compliance, safety and training has been at the heart of what we do since we were founded in 2005; however, as the built environment continues to evolve, so do building regulations and the requirements of our clients.

I have worked with Paul Thompson from Assent's Birmingham Central Office for over 15 years to successfully deliver buildings in all projects sectors. (Paul and Assent are) extremely pro-active in offering commercially aware Building Control solutions for our clients, often on very complex schemes.

Ed Baverstock - Director
BBLB Corstorphine + Wright Architects

We have been working with Assent for 2 of our projects currently and the service we have received is exceptional. We are working with Mr.Bhavik Khokhani (Ealing Office) and he is very diligent thorough and very approachable. Overall, it is a pleasure working with him. Look forward to work with him in the future too.

Enrich Construction

Assent have been excellent at every stage and in every aspect of my project. I have already appointed them for my next project and I look forward to working with them in the future.

Extension Plans

Excellent service from your company, I would be more than happy to recommend your services to other people. The builder has said he will be using your inspector in future as he was very easy to contact and always answered his phone. Many thanks.

Falcon Designs LTD

You have always provided a very prompt and efficient service for both the plan checking and the on site inspections, giving helpful advice and assistance whenever asked for, and indeed providing solutions to potential problems when they have cropped up. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others as necessary.
