Building control services provided by the Publica Group for Cotswold, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire District Councils have received the seal of approval from a new accreditation scheme run by Local Authority Building Control (LABC).

LABC started consultation on standards, performance, competencies and qualifications with local authority building control teams two years ago and this culminated in the ‘Build with Us’ independently audited ISO Quality Management Scheme which was launched earlier this year.

The Publica partnership councils were in the first tranche of building control bodies in the country to enter the new process and recently received their accreditation. 

Publica Building Control Service leader Andy Jones was presented with a formal accreditation certificate from the company’s Executive Director (Commisioning) Christine Gore and said,

“I am very proud to be one of the first recipients of this quality award.  LABC is driving up standards and improving professional competencies to develop better quality and safer buildings, and it is good to know that our work meets these rigorous benchmarks.

“We strive to maintain the best service possible and we are always eager to hear from the public to discuss future development projects and the services that we can provide to ensure that they can achieve the highest possible standards.”
