This service is designed to assist developers in measuring statutory compliance risk when considering the acquisition of development schemes, often with planning permission in place.
Our technical due diligence service includes:
1. Initial Information Appraisal:
We will carry out a desktop appraisal of the scheme information. This is likely to include drawings, fire strategy reports and correspondence with statutory authorities (such as the Building Control Body, Fire Authority and Building Safety Regulator if already progressed through Planning Gateway 1).
2. Compliance Report:
Following our initial information review, we will formulate and issue a report setting out our opinions on scheme compliance with Building Regulations parts B1-B5.

We will also highlight supplementary risks such as changes in approval regime, in-progress Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities public consultations and forthcoming design guidance changes.
3. Client Briefing:
We will meet the client to present the contents of our compliance report and highlight the key statutory compliance risks related to fire safety.
