About Ask Building Control Ltd
Ask was founded in 2012 by its co-directors Paul Sessford and Paul Willmore. The directors have a desire to provide a positive Building Control experience by encouraging an early dialogue with clients to help develop their ideas and aspirations into reality. We believe Building Control should facilitate a project through to completion, by encouraging clients to ask when in doubt, and through our ability to provide practical solutions.
The Directors have more than 30 years’ of Building Control experience, working in and around the Harrogate area, and can offer the client a single point of contact; providing a local and responsive service. Long term relationships are very important to us and can only be maintained by providing a positive client experience.
