What our clients say

“Thank you for your kindness in helping to resolve problems on our project”

“You’re doing a good job – First Class, a very personal service”

“Very satisfied – gives ideas and saves customers costs; very helpful, competent, keen to advise and a prompt service”

I wanted to leave a review for the CPD that Michael gave us on the Building Safety Act. It was an excellent CPD very informative, thorough and engaging.

“LBC have taken our eco-build (timber frame, straw infill, steeply sloping site), easily in their stride; we have been impressed by their pertinent questions and immensely helpful ‘can do’ attitude.

“Made the whole process stress free and added value to our finished product. The whole process was made so much easier by the inspector being so helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. Professional but with the ‘human touch’.

“Good attention to detail and a very direct and accessible service.”
