The design solution was developed by our in-house design team of façade engineers, structural engineers, architects, building surveyors and principal designers in conjunction with the system manufacture, independent fire engineer (which Capital appointed) and an Approved Inspector to enable us to get independent input and sign-off of the design and ensure we met current Building Regulation requirements.rnrnThe project was procured via competitive tendering from an approved list of system manufactures installers and this approach enabled us to meet the requirements of the Section 20 consultation process and the Building Safety Funds requirements of a tender return. Our Quantity Surveyors undertook the tender review and tender report for the financial submission to the Building Safety Fund.rnrnPlanning Permission was achieved via a full plans planning application submission and Building Regulation approval via an Approved Inspector. The project is due to start on site in May 2021 and complete by April 2023.
