We offer full "Assigned Certifier" and "Design Certifier" services for the construction of Residential or Commercial Projects, where a registered builder is used.
From the 1st March 2014 the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government introduced the “Building Control Management System” (BCMS). This system is to ensure that there is strict compliance with the Building Regulations when construction work takes place. This requires a building owner, to undertake the following when constructing a building:
