Gary Coxon

Yorkshire-based Building Control Approved Inspector, YDBC Ltd, has expanded its consultancy team and service coverage in the North East with the appointment of Gary Coxon as Senior Building Surveyor.

Gary brings a wealth of expertise and industry knowledge to YDBC, having worked as Principal Building Surveyor at City of York Council and prior to that as Senior Building Surveyor at a nationwide Approved Inspector. He has joined YDBC’s team of surveyors at the company’s Leyburn office, providing Building Control services for new build and refurbishment developments of all sizes in domestic and commercial sectors. YDBC also has a wide range of specialist building consultants based at its head office in Leeds.

Gary Coxon said:

“Joining YDBC is a very exciting move. The company is rapidly expanding, with business developed through multi-disciplinary skills and expertise between the two offices in Leyburn and Leeds. The past 18 months has seen a major surge in the number of property owners seeking upgrades, modifications and extensions to residential buildings. Many are turning to Approved Inspectors as an alternative to Local Authority Building Control in managing the compliance process for their projects. As a well-established and highly regarded name in Building Control, YDBC has been meeting that demand and the company is now in a very strong position.”

Katherine Naisbitt, Director at YDBC, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Gary to our Leyburn office. He has outstanding credentials and a track record of success spanning over 17 years of Building Control work within local authority and business organisations. Gary will be a major asset to YDBC’s service capabilities, and he will support our continued growth on both a regional and national basis.”

YDBC is part of the C80 Group and operates as a sister company with the Group’s other building consultancies, including Leeds-based C80 Solutions and Birmingham-based Stewarts. Their complementary capabilities enable C80 Group to offer a comprehensive range of expertise encompassing energy assessment, Building Compliance, consultancy, testing, and building services engineering.
