Our post contract services generally begin from when the cladding package has been awarded to a successful cladding contractor. FMDC can carry out pre and post contract services under one appointment or these can be appointed separately as required. Our post contract services can be tailored to suit any given project and can involve our support until project completion.
Over the years we have specified testing and test methods on many products and buildings both in the UK and overseas, going on to analyse the results and report our findings accordingly. We have amassed a wealth of data and knowledge related to product, materials and project testing both from the perspective of what to test and our finely-tuned ability to interpret the results.
Visiting the project to witness and monitor the work being carried out is an integral part of our activity and forms part of our core service. Only by making regular site visits can we assess product specification, build and installation quality and contractor compliance – all of which are necessary if the project is to be successfully delivered to the client. Our experience in due diligence work provides reliable assurances that manufactured and installed products meet the specification, which reduces technical risks and minimises later difficulties.
Sub contractor submittal review
Our facade engineers can review subcontractor drawings, samples, thermal transmittance calculations and condensation assessments, structural calculations, testing procedures and other submissions from a technical perspective, providing the professional team with clear and concise comment, advice and recommendations.
Visiting supplier premises allows us to assess their production facilities and methods so that we can be sure they have the capability and experience to deliver the systems and materials proposed. Having visited the factories of many UK, European and East Asian facade companies and material suppliers and processors, we have the necessary skills and experience to make a considered judgement about a potential supplier’s true capability.
