About Approved Inspector Services in Construction Management

Approved Inspector Services Limited (AIS) is a privately owned Chartered Surveyors practice, established in 1999 by its Managing Director Paul Timmins, formerly Managing Director of BAA Building Control Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of British Airports Authority Limited). It has grown consistently since conception and in late 2001, Stephen Remo, formerly Head of Building Control for Infraco Sub-Surface Ltd, a subsidiary company of London Underground Limited, joined Paul as a Company Director. Subsequently, the practice relocated to its current central London location. Since then the company has undergone substantial development and is still growing to meet demand.

The Company was initially set up to provide, as its core function, the specialised service of an Approved Inspector, undertaking full Building Regulations Approval for a varied client base in the South East of England. In order to undertake this type of work, AIS are licensed by the government (via the Construction Industry Council) as an "approved inspector" this license empowers AIS to provide a building control service for all categories of work and for any building type. Contrary to popular belief, as an approved inspector, AIS do not work for the local authority or act as agents on their behalf.

We are now recognized as one of the leaders in our field providing advice and support at all stages of the construction process.
