Building Safety & Compliance Services

Sweco is a leading deliverer of end to end Building Safety and Compliance services with a specific division to provide both statutory and consultative solutions. Our specialists have extensive experience across all sectors and levels of complexity, while our Building Safety, Health & Safety and Building Control teams collectively have the highest levels of competence. We work in a proactive and collaborative way to ensure your legal obligations are met, while adding value to project designs and the build process itself, including Building Regulation monitoring.

Our technical competence, cross-sector experience, industry leading processes and ISO17020 accreditation means we are ideally placed to advise you on existing and upcoming regulatory changes. Our service offering is being developed in line with the Building Safety Bill and emphasis on the Golden Thread to ensure you not only met current regulatory requirements but also your projects are future proofed.

One of our immediate focus areas is helping our clients to deal with the changes under the new Building Safety Bill, which is currently in draft with the Government, and due for Royal Assent in June 2022. Sweco is well placed to be one of pioneers in the area, as we already have the right processes in place to control information and keep it safe. Our internal auditing systems and trackers are what the building safety bill ask for.

Our core services

Building safety inspection & monitoring

As a surveyor lead unit, we can offer consultancy, site monitoring (inspection) and fire safety expertise through RIBA Stages 1-7, including:

  • Building Safety Bill Gateway 1-3 Consultancy Services
  • Overall Building Regulation/Golden Thread Compliance monitoring
  • RIBA stage 5 fire strategy site inspection monitoring
  • Access audits
  • Fire safety compliance reports (RIBA Stages 1-7)
  • Specialist cladding compliance review/monitoring

We can support your Building Safety Manager/Officer by providing a report of the inspections (scheduled or ad-hoc). We’ll also follow up on every visit with detailed advice on any issues that arise from the surveys we carry out – in the context of the regulations or guidance we’re here to help you adhere to. Through our ATP system we can offer enhanced site reports if needed, to enhance our monitoring role.

Building safety systems

We’re also able to provide full compliance monitoring for building systems. This could be at any design stage, and would involve us checking the design and/or prototypes and providing compliance report on the system at each phase. Where required we can advise on the compliance of tested products, which may in some cases involve us witnessing the test.
