Assessment of Plans and Specifications

Assessment of Plans and Specifications

We can reduce architects’ and designers’ exposure to the risk of being sued for negligent designs by identifying areas of the design that may not comply with the building code and offering appropriate design solutions. Our Clerk of Works inspections complete the Quality Assurance process to further reduce risk of liability for construction defects.

We can resolve issues of building code non-compliance for existing buildings, including 95a letters, Certificate of Acceptance and Notices to Fix. Desktop reviews of property files and building surveys allow us to compare the as planned to the as built and identify any building code compliance breaches. We also provide a scope of work to bring the building up to compliance and design work for repairs if required.
