“What we cover in our Desktop Audit”

Our expert team review your technical information.

All of our certificate services include full desk-top auditing of the technical details of a project. This is an inclusive service representing excellent value for money. A full report is provided following expert analysis of the plans and technical details; this report highlights the shortcomings of the design (if any) and gives an early warning of potential problems.

Early identification of problems saves £££££s. As an example of this recently, a client had omitted to provide SAP ratings for his self-build, which had the potential for expensive alterations being needed later on in the project. SAP ratings are important for the Energy Performance of the new dwelling, it is mandatory now for a new dwelling to achieve a certain minimum standard, failure to achieve this results in an attempt to retro-fit the house in order to comply.

The client in question was alerted to this failing in his design and was able to inexpensively add in extra insulation early on in the build and thus avoided a catastrophic expense at the end. The desk-top audit (DTA) is an essential part of our certification process and is included free of charge.

  • Martin O'Reilly ★★★★★
    An amazing service from Mark and the team. Unfortunately I lost my business partner during Covid who handled building warranty matters.In challenging times ABC were able to track all previous correspondence from as far back … More as 2018 and resolved the issue of certification, working with the original inspector to organise a final inspection with a qualified and briefed colleague over the Easter break at short notice to support the sale of our properties.This is a terrific service and I strongly recommend having a discussion to see how the team can help. We shall be return customers.A very happy Martin.
