Our Ethos

We are architects, engineers and building surveyors who are passionate about working with and helping designs to realise their vision while complying fully with statuary building regulations.

We have devised a certification system that ensures compliance is achieved at every stage of the project without any disruption or inconvenience to the design team.

As champions of quality construction, working on behalf of our clients, our multi-disciplinary approach ensures we bring solutions to assist in achieving quality building standards.

The Standard of our People

We emanate from an architectural practice, which sets us apart from other assigned certification firms. Registered and chartered architects are part of our in-house team, which means our knowledge of building regulations is more comprehensive than companies led by surveyors or engineers.

Our team of civil and structural engineers supported by sub-contract mechanical, electrical, acoustic and fire engineers assist project managers and clients to identify programme risks associated with statutory compliance in order to plan accordingly.

Over the years, we have amassed a wealth of knowledge that has proven invaluable since the inception of BC(A)R for not only identifying problems but actively assisting the design team in achieving solutions that ensure compliance.

We are the Assigned Certifiers of choice for many clients providing assigned certification services for high-profile projects around the country across all industry sectors, predominantly commercial, education and healthcare.
