WHAT IS CONSTRUCTION VERIFICATION?
Construction verification is checking the accuracy of as-built conditions in construction projects. It has become more prevalent due to clients’ increasing demand for reliable information and the availability of new technologies like laser scanning and BIM.
Verification can be done by comparing registered laser scans with the design model or construction issue drawings and providing visual and statistical feedback on the match. No matter your specifications, we are here to help!
Construction verification is an essential component of quality control in the construction industry. It helps to prevent defects, ensure compliance with regulations, and verify the integrity of the built environment. By conducting thorough verification, potential issues and non-compliances can be identified and addressed before they become safety hazards for occupants.
THE BENEFITS OF CONSTRUCTION VERIFICATION
THE BUILDING SAFETY ACT & GATEWAY 3
Digital documentation in the construction process has never been more needed. The Golden Thread which ties the Building Safety Act together, along with suggestions taken from the Hackitt Report are now staples of construction legislation. You can read more about this HERE.
The Building Safety Act 2022 was introduced following concerns of occupants in high-rise buildings after the Grenfell Tower Tragedy in 2022.
The introduction of the Building Safety Act 2022 means buildings higher than 18 metres or 7 stories are required to follow legislation to aid the quality of construction work.
The final step of this process, Gateway 3 became active in October 2023. Gateway 3 acts as the final checkpoint before specified buildings can be occupied. You can read more about the Building Safety Act and Gateway 3 here.
