Building control services are provided by Hertfordshire Building Control Ltd. Hertfordshire Building Control Ltd is jointly owned by Three Rivers District Council along with seven other Hertfordshire local authorities.

As well as building control compliance, plans assessments and site inspections, services for customers throughout the UK include: warranty, air and acoustic testing, SAP calculations, party wall surveys and specialist services; for example consultancy for high risk residential building projects. 

The company has more than 45 surveyors, the majority of whom are professionally qualified and 20 of them have achieved the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) highest level examination in managing high risk residential buildings.

The company has achieved ISO 9001 status and in 2019 was awarded the LABC Warranty Bricks Award as the best local authority partner. Its surveyors have also been recognised nationally and as well as LABC Trainee of the year for 2018, LABC Rising Star for 2019 and LABC Superstar for 2019, two of its surveyors are on the LABC training panel and on the LABC technical panel. The high standard of customer service is demonstrated by the positive feedback the team receives from customers.
