As with any business, the calibre of its staff is paramount in the Company’s ability to provide a first-rate service. Consequently, Bespoke Building Control has been created by experienced surveyors, Gareth Morgan and Adam Butler, whose customer-focused approach will provide a friendly and easy to use service.
Gareth and Adam have progressed from the early days of dealing with domestic and small retail/commercial projects onto larger and more complex multi-million pound schemes. This progression has been testament to their enthusiasm and also their commitment to providing the best possible service and design solution to the client and end user.
Both Gareth and Adam are qualified to degree level in Building Construction. Since graduating from university Gareth has furthered his studies by converting his degree to a Building Control equivalent by successfully passing additional modules.
The industry-required ‘qualified’ status has also been achieved by both Gareth and Adam via full membership of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE). They are also holders of the necessary health and safety, CSCS, qualification for construction site supervisors.
Their Building Control careers to date amass a combined total of 30 years of experience within both public and private sectors. The majority of this experience has been via the role of Approved Inspector.
Success in their careers has been achieved by forming solid relationships with clients resulting in repeat business and is reflected in the large spectrum of projects undertaken. All sectors have been accounted for giving the broadest possible experience of the Building Regulations and associated legislation.
To safeguard the role of the Approved Inspector, the Construction Industry Council (CICAIR) has developed a rigorous application procedure. Before an application for a licence can be accepted, the competency of candidates is assessed in respect of industry knowledge and experience. Once this criterion has been satisfied, it must be proven that the candidate has sufficient systems in place to ensure that the requirements of the Building Control Performance Standards and the CICAIR Code of Conduct can be met. At this stage a formal interview takes place to further assess the candidate’s acumen before an offer of licence is made.
This process was successfully completed by Bespoke Building Control in January 2007 with re-licencing in January 2012.
As part of the CICAIR Code of Conduct it is a requirement for all Approved Inspectors to have ‘appropriate professional indemnity insurance with a reputable insurance company’. Bespoke Building Control has obtained Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance policies through one of the approved providers, Griffiths and Armour. These insurance policies are underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc and are fully in line with Government Regulations.
