    Inspection Policy Update 26th March 2020 - Align Building Control Limited

    Inspection Policy Update 26th March 2020 - Align Building Control Limited

    26 March 2020 Industry News

    Following the announcements on 23rd and 25th March 2020 we have advised all staff to work from home and remain there in accordance with Government guidance.

    CABE Guidance as from 25th March 2020.

    ‘As safety is of primary importance, we implore our community to ask themselves if the work is absolutely essential to the functioning of vital services. It is CABE’s view that the VAST MAJORITY of sites should now close and all that building engineers need to consider if their project really counts as essential works’.

    On consideration of all the advice we believe that the intent is to restrict travel and interaction to only those projects where we can be sure that suitable precautions are in place to prevent the transmission of the virus and those relating to the treatment and care of those affected by the COVID-19 virus.

    We trust that you will understand and support us in this approach.

    Although most physical inspections will cease, if you are continuing to operate, we ask that you continue to notify us of key construction stages requiring inspection and at that point we will assess the risk and determine if we can inspect or if a virtual video inspection or photographs may be accepted.

    In all other aspects we will continue as normal and we will deal with applications and attend design team meetings by conference call.

    In addition, we will continue to inspect where absolutely necessary subject to the measures being put in place to deal with this virus.

    It is anticipated that these measures will remain in place for at least the next 21 days or longer as advised by the Government.

    We are adopting this approach to ensure that our valued employees, clients, sub-contractors, the public and loved ones continue to remain safe during these challenging times.

    What people say about our services

    Align Building Control were used for the loft conversion, extension and refurbishment of our house. The surveyor was always available to help with any queries and gave technical advice by phone, email or site visit, very professional. The process of gaining approval was made much easier by their availability, technical assistance and flexible approach

    We would recommend Align for any projects

    We have a great working relationship with Align.  They provide an excellent service on a variety of projects; residential and commercial.  They have a prompt turnaround on the Plan Check and are very proactive with any site queries or visits.  They are very knowledgeable and they are readily available for consultations prior to building regulation submission. We enjoy working with them because of their professional and friendly approach to each project.’

    ‘I have found the proactive approach and prompt turnaround times that characterise the service we get from Align to be really helpful in keeping our building projects moving forward.

    It feels like Align are part of the team helping you to complete a building project safely and to a high standard rather than an inspector seeking to criticise and find fault.’
