This is where we can enhance your team, with the experience of the products available within the current market place, that will deliver the required aesthetic. Yet also meet the budgetry constraints and be compliant .
We can also assist in the appointment process in order to ensure that the correct choice is made in the selection of sub-contractors with regards to the vetting process
Design compliancy is at the heart of what we offer as a business, as the ever changing requirements of the various regulatory bodies is somewhat of a minefield. If it is not interpreted correctly, can become an extremely expensive one, as retrospective works are always more expensive than getting it right first time.
We endeavor to have a close working relationship with the regulatory bodies in order to achieve the most comprehensive service, this is not only restricted to the UK but Europe, USA and the UAE as certain aspects of system and design change have influences within the UK.
We have strong links with the NHBC and work closely in the development of the right solution for the project which may entail project specific testing with bodies such as the BRE.
Design strategies through to full facade and roof design drawings can be developed for project specific requirements or for cost control purposes in the early stages in design development, these services are given to Architects and Developers alike.
We have in house CAD designers and Modelling Software and we are Autodesk Licensed for Revit, Inventor and Autocad 15 software to ensure we can give a fully comprehensive service and BIM compliance.
Facade testing although a requirement of some regulatory bodies as standard, is not required by others, however we find that the majority of our clients undertake this option as it gives piece of mind as to the weatherability of the facade they have just installed. As maintenance of a facade, is an extremely expensive operation after the building is complete, notwithstanding the disruption to the client or resident.
We work closely with a number of test houses all of which are UKAS accredited to ensure NHBC compliance.
The auditing system that we carry out is the culmination of years of experience, with knowledge of the products that are installed in the market place. We have a comprehensive range of check lists that are compliant to the regulatory bodies and have developed template systems for the recording of specific information that is required for submission, with monitoring systems in place to ensure that the target dates are met to achieve the completion dates. All of our inspector's carryout electronic audits on our custom software with photographic evidence.
Thermal Calculations and Condensation Risk Analysis are carried out on either project specific information or if required in design development solutions, we have 3D modelling software that we can calculate specific elements of the construction for a more accurate calculation.
