The working relationship between Coventry City Council Building Control and Acivico Building Consultancy was critical in the delivery of the Building Control Services for this landmark building in Coventry.

The two organisations provided the design appraisal and site inspection service for this unique ExtraCare development . The building was complex because of its height and it’s use which brought the design and build teams many challenges in particular fire safety and structural design.

Throughout the construction process there was continuous dialogue between the two organisations ensuring the pathway to building control completion was as smooth as possible . This relationship was critical to ensure both plan appraisal and the issuing of completion certificates was timely and in line with the business requirements of the client Extracare Charitable trust, Galliford Try the contractor and Nichol Thomas the project architects.  

This is one of a number of ExtraCare developments across the West Midlands which Acivico has provided the Building Control Services for ExtraCare Charitable Trust and Acivico is delighted to have worked with the same design and build teams over the last 10 years.
