Project Supervisor Design Process ( PSDP )

JBC has been undertaking the role of PSDP since its introduction for non-domestic projects. Now that the Health & Safety at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013 require a PSDP to be appointed for residential developments JBC fulfils the role.

Pre-Purchase Surveys

A pre-purchase survey is essential for any buyer before they consider buying a property. The survey will alert the buyer to defects, hidden and unhidden, in the home or premises. The survey will also highlight potential future risks or maintenance costs. Even when it comes to new buildings the survey is needed. We at JBC have often found serious defects in new buildings because of the speed and volume of new building development during Ireland’s boom.

Assigned Certifier

The role of Assigned Certifier has been introduced in the Building Control Regulations 2013. The Assigned Certifier is the person assigned by the Building Owner to inspect and certify the building works on completion. This role can only be undertaken by a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Building Surveyor or a registered Architect.

Fire Safety Compliance

This JBC service extends from the preparation and submission of Fire Safety Certificate Applications to undertaking surveys of existing systems and making recommendations for compliance.

Planning Consultancy

This service is provided jointly by JBC and our sister firm McNamara & Partners, Architectural Design. With almost 60 years of combined experience in dealing with planning legislation.
