EWS1 - Help or Hindrance?

We were delighted to once again work in partnership with the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) to raise awareness of the ongoing EWS1 issue.

As a board member for the association, I was asked to appear on BBC Newsnight and was interviewed by Richard Watson over the difficulties many leaseholders continue to face.

Unfortunately, it’s a problem we see at PartB far too often. That's why our approach to the EWS1 process is considered and based upon risk. We have saved leaseholders thousands of pounds where unnecessary works have been previously recommended by ill qualified or inexperienced surveyors and engineers.

I’ve also produced an article for CABE, released in the September edition of 'Building Engineer', highlighting both the problems associated with the EWS1 process and the opportunities that exist to lubricate the process on new buildings.

If you have concerns regarding the adequacy of proportionality of your EWS1 assessment, get in touch and make use of our peer review service, where can look into your building for you.

We can't fix everything, but we do promise to provide you with accurate, impartial, objective advice.
