Intervention prior to submission of the planning application ensured that the design would be acceptable under Building Regulations. We undertook early consultation with our sister company Trenton Fire for compliance advice. Our Project Manager coordinated detailed consultations with the IOW Fire Service, attending regular meetings and joint site visits in order that all interested parties were kept fully informed. We also witnessed cause and effect testing with the Fire Authority and local crews to establish the risks involved in what is one of the largest buildings on the island.
Constant communication with the design team and contractors through regular site visits, reports and tracking schedules kept the design team informed of compliance issues from inception to completion.
