High Value Warranty

LABC Warranty has worked in partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC) to provide a combined building control and structural warranty solution for over 10 years.

LABC is the largest building control provider in the UK and has been the trusted provider for some of the UK’s most prestigious developments including The Shard and the London Olympic Stadium. Together LABC and LABC Warranty have helped deliver quality high rise projects for some of the top developers in the country.
