Welcome from the ACAI Executive

Paul Timmins, Chairman, ACAI

The Association of Consultant Approved Inspectors (ACAI) is an organisation that represents most private sector building control bodies registered as Approved Inspectors (AIs).

AIs operate in a highly regulated environment overseen by the Construction Industry Council Approved Inspectors Register, which requires us to meet robust registration requirements, competency assessments and regular auditing against a strict code of conduct.

AIs provide competence and capacity to the building control sector. They are an essential part of the construction process, offering valuable expertise across every type of building project.

The aim of the ACAI is to support members by providing thought leadership, a vision for private sector building control and a collective voice in communication with Government, Industry and wider society.

Recently, we have been working closely with Government to design the planned new framework for building control following the Hackitt Review. Our ambition throughout the process has been to make sure that the benefits private building control bring to the industry are retained in the new system.

Within the industry, we support best practice in the delivery of a high-quality building control service and continue to encourage skilled young people into the sector.

If you’ve got any questions about the ACAI or how we operate, please get in touch.
