It is best, in your own interest, to have independent professional advice and employ an architect throughout your project. As part of the overall BER analysis of building performance and in accordance with Part L of the Building Code, the specification and thermal performance of hot water, heating and other systems must be identified. This information contributes to the BER rating. In order to demonstrate compliance with the building rules and define the BER assessment, it is necessary to have the heating system calculated and specifically defined by a qualified mechanical and electrical advisor. This minimizes the risk of over-features or under-specification of sanitary and heating systems, allowing for an optimal cost of capital as well as long-term savings and benefits through more efficient use of costs. The mechanical and electrical project advisor is appointed by the client on separate terms, as agreed. 3DA will gladly advise and coordinate you when ordering a mechanical consultant. We will continue to perform PSPD tasks in the next phases of the project, as defined in the RIAI agreement between the Client and the architect for the provision of health and safety process coordinator services that were signed at the beginning. Building rules Part A – Bauwerk (2012) is also a specialty. It is necessary that your new building part L complies with the rules of construction and proves that it meets minimum standards of energy efficiency.
The thermal power of your proposed building must therefore be identified. This is done through an evaluation of BER. The evaluation gives the BER rating of your building. A landlord must provide a BER rating to potential buyers or tenants when a home is put up for sale or rent. A landlord must also receive a BER before moving into a new home for the first time, whether it is offered for sale or rent. BER information should also appear in listings when a home is listed for sale. An architect cannot provide BER for his own design. As a result, the task must be entrusted to a BER certifier.
The BER certifier is appointed by the contracting entity under separate conditions by appointment. 3DA will gladly advise you and coordinate the appointment of a duly qualified BER certifier. For our housing work, we follow the RIAI Work `Domestic` Stages. that does everything you can expect from your architect. Click here The architect`s first idea is coarse and unpolished, the working model can be a little choppy and the sketch drawings can present some wobbly “sketch” lines: your building must be designed in accordance with the requirements of Building Code A to Mr. Bauordnung Part A – Bauwerk (2012) is a specialty. The services of a Technical Management and Structural Project Compensation Engineer (PSE) are therefore required. The ESP will provide professional overview, advice, design, specification, inspection, certification and advice on structural aspects. The project engineer is also required to provide the assigned certifier (see above) with information and evidence for uploading to the BCMS (see above).
The PES shall be appointed by the contracting entity on agreed terms. 3DA will gladly advise you and coordinate the appointment of a qualified and experienced project planner.
