BSRIA is an independent, member-based organisation that provides specialist consultancy, testing, research and instrument distribution services for clients within the construction, building services and facilities management industries. Our aim is to promote energy and water efficiency, best practice in construction and effective operation of buildings by providing expert support and advice based on over 50 years of experience. 

As a non-profit, member-based association, BSRIA is able to provide independent, impartial advice based on product testing and market research. Any profits made by the organisation are reinvested in our ongoing research programme, producing industry-recognised best practice guidance. 

Founded in 1955, BSRIA (The Building Services Research and Information Association) is one of the most established organisations of its kind. In 2011-12, the company had a turnover of £11.7 million. We currently employ 180 people at our head office in Bracknell and at offices in Germany, France, Spain, China, Malaysia and North America.

BSRIA provides an accredited nationwide airtightness testing service for all types of building. Whether it’s a single dwelling or a large commercial development, we can help you achieve compliance with the Building Regulations. We have engineers on hand throughout England, Wales and Scotland, and can also offer airtightness testing in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland through our partnership with Anderson Mechanical Services. 

BSRIA has been carrying out airtightness assessments for over 30 years, in which time we have completed some 5,000 tests. Our aim is to ensure your building passes first time, but if it doesn’t, we’ll provide practical, cost-effective remedies on-site to ensure it’s ready next time around.

Building Compliance

We offer a range of services to help constructors and designers comply with the Building Regulations and to ensure that their buildings are completed to the agreed design requirements. 

With the number and complexity of Building Regulations always increasing, more and more contractors and designers are looking to organisations like the BSRIA to prove their compliance and to guide them through the regulations so that they pass first time. 

At BSRIA, we don’t just help you comply with the regulations: we help you to deliver the best possible building for your clients. Our services cover:

  • Stress-free compliance to Building Regulations.
  • Building control recognised certificates and reports.
  • Support services and consultancy to improve buildings beyond the requirements of the regulations.  

We also offer an Introduction to Building Regulations training course for anyone requiring an overview of the current legislation.

We offer a one-stop-shop for building design issues, environmental and energy assessment and Part L compliance, whilst also providing advice for improvement.
