This experience gives us the capability to outline all the potential risks early on to our Clients, ensuring a streamlined application process is delivered, reducing the risk of any nasty surprises which can potentially delay a decision notice by months.
Our experienced team are here to help you navigate the planning process and get approval for your building. We can customise your building to appease the concerns of your local authority if needs be. Our aim is to ensure your planning application is carried out with efficiency, professionalism and diligence.
Navigating the planning system can be full of ambiguity without prior experience, however some clients may feel comfortable with elements of the process. As such, our service level offering can be tailored to suit the needs of both the client and project:
Production of required Planning Drawings only.
Production and Submission of Planning Drawings and Application Forms (excluding surveys/specialist consultant reports).
Production and Submission of Planning Drawings and Application Forms and Commission of relevant surveys/specialist consultant reports.
Most buildings will require approval by building control. 3CB provide a complete service to ensure building regulations compliance is achieved for your building. Our technical expertise and experience with this building typology sets us apart from the competition. We are very well placed to provide a clean, efficient and affordable route to building regulations compliance.
All construction works in the UK are subject to CDM (Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015). Under CDM 2015, each member of the project team need to be aware of their duties, these duties are wide ranging and will vary dependent on the size and type of the job.
Part of a Client's duties is to formally appoint a Principle Designer and Principle Contractor. 3CB have the competences to undertake both of these roles if required. As Principle Contractor, 3CB's duties would include production of the Construction Phase Plan and management of the Health & Safety file. We have assured experience in complying with our CDM duties and apply the legislative framework to ensure projects are handled safely and rationally.
The Client is also obliged to issue an F10 (Notification of construction project form) to the HSE (only for work lasting longer than 30 days with more than 20 workers working at the same time, or involving 500 person days of work). 3CB are here to help with any questions, regarding your duties under the CDM regulations.
