    Planning Permission

We are also responsible for developing and formulating the employer’s requirements and contract documents, coordinating the design team, contract administration and agreeing quality control, sign off and handover procedures on site through our clerk of works.

The design solution was developed through a process of investigations, significant consideration in terms of the design solutions, third party input in respect of design approval and sign off and close cost control.

The project was procured via a design and build contract with the contractor appointed via a cladding contractor’s framework and engaged via a pre-construction services agreement to work closely with the design team to develop and agree the design solution and contract sum to take forward to the Building Safety Fund application.

Planning Permission was achieved via a full plans planning application and Building Regulation Approval via an Approved Inspector. The project is due to start on site in June 2021 with works due to be completed in June 2022.

The project required a knowledge and understanding of several cladding systems in order to formulate appropriate design solutions. As the scheme was subject to a Building Safety Fund application it was critical that the eligibility assessment was presented correctly, and the key milestones and timelines achieved to obtain funding.
