Welcome to The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Building Control, your local, independent, impartial, not for profit service.
The Building Control service exists to ensure that buildings are designed and constructed in accordance with the Building Regulations & Associated Legislation.

These are the standards:
- safeguard the health and safety of persons in and around the buildings;
- conserve energy through insulation, and control usage;
- provide access and facilities for disabled persons.
