What has changed?
We are now in an era of evidence based testing not desktop assessment. This means that as a developer keeping evidence of materials relating to the external wall system (EWS) as they arrive on site, as they are installed is crucial. No matter what contractor certification, QA system or build guarantee is in place no competent Managing Agent can avoid invasive testing at first, to prove what has been constructed.
Fire Risk Assessment needs to be a Type 2 Survey.
