"Having worked with Assent Building Control on various contracts I have found them to be very knowledgeable and professional. Adding not just expertise to the building control process but also offering excellent advice allowing for value engineering and improved designs.

2h Storage Solutions works within the industrial warehouse fit out sector as well as retail and other commercial property, it is important to us that we get a quick response to project issues both in the design stage and the construction phases. It is great to work with a company that shares our values of professional and high service levels, the team at Assent Building Control have worked hard and been flexible leaving a positive impression on both us and our clients.

"I have known Andy Rich from Assent's Plymstock office for 15 years and have found him to be reliable, conscientious and professional. We are a small but busy practice whose work ranges from historical conservation to intricately detailed new build, and we rely on the professional one on one working relationship we have with Andy to see all these projects through to fruition.

With his extensive knowledge of the building regulations and ability to inform us quickly and accurately how the regulations both apply and can be used to assist the design, Andy is considered essential, proactive and responsive to this practice and looks to provide solutions to problems.

I would recommend Andy to anybody who seeks an active professional who forms part of the team from design inception to site completion."

With a good knowledge of the Building Regulations, Nicola was organised with the Building Control matrix we asked her to produce and always available to speak to on the phone or meeting on site to discuss any issues.

We would certainly work with Nicola again on future projects."

"I have worked with Paul Thompson from Assent's Birmingham Central Office for over 15 years to successfully deliver buildings in all projects sectors. I find Paul and Assent to be extremely pro-active in offering commercially aware Building Control solutions for our clients, often on very complex schemes. Paul provided excellent advice during the design stage and on site for the Moseley School Sports Facility. The new building provided a new Sports Hall and changing block and linked several other existing sports facilities with a new corridor. The fire strategy which was agreed with Assent in the early stages ensured that the project was delivered on budget."

Angela has always provided an efficient well informed client friendly service and has offered invaluable advice on many aspects of regulatory compliance, this is however only part of the service offered as Angela and Assent really know their clients and what aspects are important to them, tailoring advice to suit.

"Des is a diligent and thorough Building Control Inspector. He is a good communicator and it is because of this that we often consult with him at the early stages of a project in order to get a building control view. When a project is on site we have found Des’s presence positively influences the standards of a project."

"We have worked with Mark Van Schalkwyk from Assent Dorset for over five years and his expertise and guidance has been invaluable to us as a practice.

As architects we are design led and at times this creates testing challenges between aesthetics and the practicalities of the Building Regulations.
Mark is always available to talk these challenges through and offer pragmatic and workable solutions.

He is both personable and knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with and we all consider him very much part of our team!"
