    Clerk of Works

Our role included production of the employer’s requirements and contract documents, appointment of sub-consultants, management and coordination of the design team, validation of the contractor’s design proposal (in agreement with our chartered structural and fire engineers), agreement of the contract sum (via our independent Quantity Surveyors), administration of the BSF application on behalf of our client, obtaining planning and building regulation approvals, management of health and safety / CDM requirement (principal designer role).  In addition, once the works are approved for funding Capital will act as contract administrators, cost consultants and also agree quality control procedures, site sign off and handover procedures and will issue the updated EWS1 forms on completion of the remediation works.

Planning Permission was submitted via a full plans planning application and Building Regulation approval via an external Approved Inspector. The project is currently being assessed for BSF funding eligibility and following agreement is likely to start on site in March 2022 with a completion date of May 2023

The project was subject to a Building Safety Fund application and presented several technical challenges to firstly risk profile the failings of the existing cladding systems and then to establish eligibility for BSF funding and the appropriate design solution for the necessary remediation works.
