EWS1 Form Solution
Capital offers a unique and unrivalled service in the production of EWS1 forms for our clients. We achieve this by having a dedicated team of Chartered Surveyors, Chartered Fire Engineers and our own internal Building Works and Investigation teams, managed by Capital as a single point of responsibility. We can also support your Building Safety Fund application and delivery.
In addition to employing the relevant professionals, Capital is currently one of the few Chartered Surveying practices in the UK with the appropriate level of Professional Indemnity Insurance to enable us to manage and sign off EWS1 forms. Capitals team of professionals have gained significant experience in the process since the introduction of the EWS1 form and have refined their methodologies to ensure that the process not only streamlined for the client, but where necessary also offers value for money in the accompanying reports.
In developing our own minor building works division, we can provide an efficient, cost-effective solution in undertaking any necessary building works to support opening up and investigations. Our offering includes Chartered Fire Engineering input where appropriate and we work closely and in partnership with a number of specialist professionals so that we can manage the signing off of B1 and B2 options and risk assess the outcomes of any findings.
