STMC was approved by the Secretary of State, under Part II of the Building Act 1984, as a Corporate Approved Inspector in September 1998. This enables us to carry out Building Regulations Approvals and site inspections as an alternative to the Local Authority throughout England and Wales.
The company operates out of five offices and has extensive experience through its directors and staff on projects including large shopping centres, hospitals, universities, factories, warehouses, leisure complexes and retail units. Our expertise encompasses the latest technologies in fire engineering and structural engineering solutions.
STMC is committed to providing Continuing Professional Development for all technical and administrative staff and offer in-house seminars as part of our service, which enables you to keep up to date with the changes to the Regulations.
We have developed and maintained a comprehensive client base during this period and understand the necessity to adopt a commercially aware ethos.

STMC is able to provide early advice on fastrack construction projects to finalise Building Regulations requirements before construction commences, thus avoiding changes during the on-site phase. Cost savings may be made on Building Regulations fees, depending on the size and complexity of the project.

STMC is retained by a number of domestic and international retail clients, our partnering arrangement has proved very beneficial within this sector. A relationship is built up with one office which is responsible for all plan checking no matter where the project is located within England & Wales. The office local to the project will then carry out all the site inspections.
