Covid-19 - Align Building Control Limited
24 March 2020 Industry News
The current advice from CICAIR is to carry on
inspecting as usual however at Align Building Control we have taken the
decision not to carryout completion inspections to occupied premises.
Following the relevant advice from the Government
we plan to avoid all non-urgent travel and contact, however we are committed to
continuing to offer you a high level of service.
We are continually monitoring the situation and we are making the appropriate contingency plans. All surveyors are homeworking.
We would ask that you continue to notify us of
stages of work that require inspection. At that point we will assess if the
inspection could effectively be carried out by remote means such as photographs
or video conferencing.
In respect of visits to domestic premises, our surveyors announce themselves and then ideally continue to inspect the work unaccompanied, or if necessary, at a distance of at least 2 metres from any person.
Our surveyors will not visit any premises where any
person on site is self-isolating and we ask that you advise us as soon as
On larger sites our surveyors will utilise the
hand-washing facilities on arrival and departure and will carry out inspections
whilst maintaining a distance of 2 metres from any person. It is possible that
this approach may necessitate temporarily shutting down parts of the
construction process during the inspection.
If, following an inspection you become aware that you, or someone the surveyor interacted with has contracted Covid-19, please contact us immediately. Contact details can be found on our website, please click on the link to source. https://www.aligngroup.co.uk/
We thank you again for your understanding during
this challenging time for us all.
