EBCS, formerly Elmbridge Borough Council Building Control, is the first Building Control Mutual in the country. We are a staff owned company set up to provide the building control service on behalf of Elmbridge Borough Council. The company was created with support and finance from the Cabinet Office and is staffed by the same team that worked for the Authority.
Key to the success of our business is the intention that our customers will see no reduction in the level or quality of service that we provide. We intend to introduce innovative ways to support our customers and improve our level of service delivery such as the introduction of a smart phone App making inspection requests easier and quicker.
If there is anything else we can do to help you or if you have any comments on the service we provide do not hesitate to contact us, our details can be found on the ‘Contact’ page.
Please pass on to the Chief Executive my full praise for Mr Darren O Keefe who always consistently provided clear, concise and practical advice on building control matters. Every time we have a query he is prompt, clear and very well informed. I have not found this to be the case in other local authorities. Thank you we very much, appreciate it.
