Oculus is an expert team of highly knowledgeable Approved Inspectors for Building Control Services and Consultants for Fire Safety

Experts in Building Control
Passionate About Buildings

Leaders in their field, they are advocates of early consultation, a pioneering approach that allows them to gain compliance with the concepts and requirements embodied in the building regulations throughout the entire design and construction process. This both mitigates the risk of additional expensive design and construction costs and enables clients to maintain the integrity of their architectural vision.

Their expertise spans the full range of architectural styles and building types. They also have a particular passion for historic buildings and are able to analyse and advise on the most cost effective, least intrusive ways of fulfilling the requirements of building regulations for accessibility and fire safety with minimum intervention whilst maintaining and protecting the fabric of the historic building itself.
