Building Fabric Consultancy

For the developer and builder, the demonstration of compliance with construction regulations and guidance is of paramount importance. Building fabric performance, in terms of product selection, detailed design and installation, has great bearing on a building’s ultimate performance with regards to insulation, weatherproofing, noise transmission and fire resistance.

RSK’s building sciences team provides advice, testing and validation services for a building’s external envelope and fabric performance. We aim to help our clients gain regulatory compliance for their projects by applying our extensive experience of a vast array of building types, identifying and resolving potential defects at the earliest possible stage.

Bespoke solutions

Our team provides innovative solutions to construction challenges, helping our clients to meet specific requirements, and delivers bespoke services tailored to each project. Working collaboratively with clients from appointment to project completion and beyond, we identify and resolve defects that can arise during construction, post-completion and occupation stages. Our consultants and testers have a great depth of knowledge and experience in building design and delivery.

Overcoming complex challenges

Many challenges face the developer and building contractor. These include commercial pressures, time constraints and difficulties brought about through complex and demanding building designs and specifications. Failure to achieve specified performance criteria and meet regulatory requirements can cause delays and additional costs. By identifying issues early, such problems may be mitigated. To this end, we take a proactive approach, assisting in the coordination of designs and specifications to avoid site issues, and working with the site team to manage the quality of installation, subsequently reducing the risk of non-compliant work.

Wealth of knowledge

Thanks to our wealth of knowledge and expertise, we can offer a wide range of services, including thermographic surveys and fire risk assessments. We offer consultancy services for cladding, roofing, building envelope airtightness, fabric acoustic performance and passive fire protection. Our experienced team has a deep understanding of design and consultancy and can provide our clients with expert advice and accredited testing for building envelopes and fabric. We also provide litigation and expert witness works, fire strategy reviews and consultancy, and building envelope dilapidation surveys, condition reports and defect investigations.

The wider RSK group offers further services to support the construction sector, from pre-planning support through design to delivery and handover.

Saving time and money

We save our clients the hassle of delays, disruptions and additional costs by providing comprehensive building fabric consultancy, testing and validation services. Through early involvement, and the application of a wealth of knowledge and experience, we greatly reduce the likelihood that a project will fail to comply with fabric regulations.
