11. Additional information

What we will do.

We may request additional information to satisfy ourselves that works comply with the regulations. We may also ask for works to be opened up or elements removed to enable further inspection.

Where you or your architect, designer or builder proposes a solution to contraventions raised by our surveyor, we are happy to advise on their acceptability.

What we will not do.

We cannot design building works or instruct how to make works compliant, as the responsibility for compliant design remains with the architect, agent, designer, builder and ultimately, the building owner.

What you will need to do (including a builder, architect or agent acting for you).

Any amended plans or required supplementary information should be provided in advance of works on site to provide us with sufficient information to inspect the works and determine compliance.
