Scantec are working with a leading Approved Inspector that, due to a continued increase in workload, is seeking the addition of a Building Control Surveyor of any grade to service their client's within the Swindon/Wiltshire region.

You would be joining a successful regional team and an influential manager, with a diverse project based although focused on residential schemes. Due to the team being well established and successful locally, you would not be required to cover a vast region unlike with many AI's.

This opportunity is perfect for either an established Surveyor seeking a greater work-life balance, or a developing Surveyor seeking the support and variance in projects required to achieve chartership. Although day-to-day projects are focused on residential, as a business, development takes precedence so there is always opportunity to get involved in commercial and/or complex projects. 

Key Responsibilities:
  • To deliver agreed procedures to provide effective building control services on a range of projects in terms of size and complexity
  • Review of plans and other associated matters for compliance with building regs and associated legislation
  • Delivery of site inspections and testing of building works for compliance with building regs and associated legislation
  • Liaison with applicants, agents, consultants/statutory bodies and the public
  • Preparation of formal schedules of comments and observations whilst ensuring effective follow up and implementation of actions highlighted as part of the inspection process
Person Specification:
  • Proven relevant industry experience within a Building Control environment, carrying out plan checking and site inspections and managing your own projects
  • Part of full membership of a relevant professional body such as RICS, CABE or CIOB
  • Extensive knowledge and application of Building Regulations, AI regs and associated legislation
  • Ability to undertake basic structural appraisals of submitted designs, relevant to size of project
  • Full UK Driving Licence and use of a car
