PUNCH Consulting Engineers were appointed as Assigned Certifier for this project comprising the construction of 90 No. new detached, semi-detached and terrace housing units and associated site development works as part of a design/build rapid build development.
PUNCH as the Assigned Certifiers organised for a Standard Commencement Notice to be submitted to the online Building Control Management System (BCMS) in accordance with statutory requirements. PUNCH also correlated and submitted the relevant Statutory & Ancillary certificates; associated drawings and documentation to the Local Authority / online Building Control Management System (BCMS).
PUNCH co-ordinated numerous BC(A)R progress review meetings with the Design/Build Contractor and their Design team as appropriate and undertook numerous periodic site inspections at appropriate times in accordance with the Inspection Plan during the course of the works to ensure that the works including any changes were carried out in accordance with the design team drawings and specifications and Technical Guidance Documents of the Building Regulations (Part A-M).
In addition, PUNCH co-ordinated, implemented and updated the Inspection Plan accordingly following completion of the inspections carried out by the relevant Design/Build Design Team members and closed-out all non-compliance issues.
PUNCH obtained all relevant Declaration of Performance Certificates / CE markings from the Design/Build Contractor for the appropriate materials used as part of the works with all relevant documentation available via their ‘4projects’ shared document database.
In accordance with the client’s phased completion / handover requirements, PUNCH subsequently correlated and submitted 5 No. separate Certificates of Compliance on Completion for the works; including all relevant Design/Build Design Team, Specialist and Sub-Contractor Ancillary Certificates; and supporting drawings and documentation to the online Building Control Management Systems (BCMS).
In accordance with Building Control (Amendment) Regulation 2014 requirements, validation was successfully obtained from the Local Authority Building Control for each of the 5 No. phased completions and placed on the Local Authority’s register in advance of public occupation.
The project was successfully completed in November 2018.
