Our EWS (External Wall System) Construction Review & Assessment services have been developed in response to a growing demand by end-owners, funders, investment partners and joint venture entities seeking comfort that their developments will meet market and statutory expectations in the context of the make-up of the external façade(s).
Our clients typically want assurances on three related yet different aspects.
- Assurance sought on the resilience of a development or building either in construction or at the pre-construction stage, in the context of EWS issues that might arise if potential future conversion or redevelopment (to a different use class) is being considered.
- Assessment of the resilience of a development or building as an investment where a sleeping risk might exist if that investment were to be offered to the market and funders required an EWS assessment.
- Assessment of a development or building and provision of advice vis-à-vis the EWS in the context of potential risks relating to the insurance market and future building insurance policies / requirements.
