About us

Quality Site Inspection for over 29 years

For the past 29 years we have built a reputation based on quality, trust and exceptional service to become one of the industry’s most respected Quality Site Inspection consultancies in the UK.

Our founder and Chairman, Tony Hickton, retired in 2016 and under the leadership of our new Managing Director, Tony Mobbs, we became part of a group of businesses partly owned by CEPS Plc who were attracted by our strong management structure, healthy forward order book and our potential for growth. Due to their Aim Listed status, we are now subject to robust financial audits to ensure compliance.

Hickton Group Ltd is the holding company comprising the four individual businesses within the group – Hickton Consultants Ltd, BRCS (Building Control) Ltd, Cook Brown Building Control Ltd and Cook Brown Energy Ltd. Each business remains independent to each other and you can continue to appoint the individual companies directly for the core service which they provide, but with added value of the group key strengths.

The enhanced Group structure continues our ambition to be a leading multi-disciplinary provider of quality inspection and consultancy services in the construction sector. Being able to provide independent services of Quality Site Inspections, Building Control Services and Energy Consultancy is a unique service to us.

Whilst contractually these services remain separate to one another, we can effectively co-ordinate a service which champions quality, compliance and sustainability in construction to benefit your project.

Being part of the Group means that there is financial strength, greater project opportunities, stronger technical expertise & personnel and wider geographic coverage across the UK.
