Jim and Mary had decided to build their new home in Wellsford, Hertfordshire. The project was a joint one involving both their talents and financial investment. When the contractors were due to begin their building, Jim and Mary, as usual, carried out a thorough pre-construction building report in Wellsford on their house in order to check their compliance with all building regulations and UK Building Regulations. Jim was particularly keen to ensure that his new home met all of the council requirements for certificate.
This report provided by Jim’s Building Inspections is a detailed account of the major construction errors made during the build. It also included the results of a pressure washer test which was positive and the reasons for this favorable result. This was followed by a discussion between the engineers who had conducted the report and Jim. Jim’s report then went to the local authority for permission approval.
The engineer who had conducted the test gave Jim’s new house a LEED Silver Level of Green Certification. Jim was elated! He had achieved exactly what he wanted from the project – an excellent green building rating. Then it was time to find out how good a steward was going to be at the site. Jim trusted his engineer completely and was pleased to see that this would not be a major problem. A steward was sent and Jim felt relieved.
Jim hired an architect to help with the rest of the construction. He wanted someone who was familiar with the project and who would be happy to discuss the report’s findings with Jim. Jim and Mary were then ready to employ the services of the new engineer who would oversee everything from floor plan drawings to the engineers. Jim was reassured again that he had found the right engineer to consult on the project.
Jim contacted the engineer on the first day of work and explained the need for a building permit and asked him to search the property for any building permit paperwork. The engineer found no such paperwork and was a great asset to Jim as he found and recorded all relevant documentation in his notebook. Jim then asked the engineer to meet him at the site shortly. Jim met the engineer at the property and the two men got to talking more about the project and about the plans for the home. Jim and the engineer had a great talk and the engineer told Jim about his background, his experiences, the projects that he had recently completed, and specifically about the Green Label Homes program.
Jim asked the engineer if he knew about Green Label Homes and asked what the process involved. The engineer informed Jim that the program was a voluntary one started by President Obama to encourage responsible home building. The goal was to provide a guide that could help potential buyers with buying a property that was built using sustainable building practices. Jim knew that he needed a building report in Wellsford and went back to the site to get one. He mentioned his project to the property owner, who agreed to get the building inspection report in the event that there was a building permit required.
Jim was happy with the response from the property owner and contacted the Building Department to be sure that his building report in Wellsford would be processed without issue. Jim made sure to keep the building inspection report in the original folder that he had brought with him when he first visited the property. Two weeks later, Jim received a call from the Building Department to let him know that his building inspection report in Wellsford had been processed and would be arriving shortly. Jim was very happy that his building inspection report in Wellsford wasn’t delayed another day and was on his way to having his new home built.
Jim’s story is a great example of what can happen when you take matters into your own hands when you’re not adequately prepared or perhaps have no idea how to handle an issue. It can result in great benefit for you and your pocketbook. You would be surprised by how quickly some of these things are completed and by the cost savings. Jim has enjoyed the benefit of the building report in Wellsford and is in the process of applying to purchase the new house which he is leasing. He is as eager as ever to get started on his new adventure as soon as he is able.
