MICA REDRESS SCHEME
I am on the register of approved engineers for the Mica Redress Scheme. At the time of writing the scope and format of the reports to be presented to Donegal and Mayo County councils have yet to be finalised but it is anticipated the format will follow the NSAI IS 465:2018. As such the fee levels for the survey report have not been determined.
I am expecting to be in a position to offer a discount for groups of 4 to 5 householders who can arrange for me to view their homes on the same day in the same development as this will facilitate some economies of scale. I expect to be offering my services from July 2020 or as soon as the councils are prepared to accept applications for the scheme. Please contact me initially by e-mail!

A full site project management and supervision service can be provided. We undertake regular site visits at the critical stages of construction: the excavation and construction of foundations, drainage works, rising walls, flooring, walls, roofing and any structural elements of the building. We monitor the works during the construction phase of the building to ensure compliance with best building practice and standards. The requirements under the current Building Regulations and the conditions of the Grant of Planning Permission where applicable are also monitored during the construction phase. At each interim inspection we can certify the payments to the contractor and upon completion of the works we can issue a Certificate of Compliance for the project if required.
The service also provides for the review of tender packages and formal contracts prior to construction. The services offered also include the following:
Advice in the selection of competent building contractors; regular contract meetings to ensure that all aspects of the drawings and specifications have been fully understood by the builder/contractor, dealing with any issues that present during the construction phases as they arise so as to ensue the smooth running of the project and acting solely for you and on your behalf when you engage our professional services.
When the work commences we will administer the main building contract on your behalf, advise you by way of staged payments due to the builder-payments are normally made at fixed stages, for example, on completion of the external walls, roof works, electrical installation etc. Your lender may require this certification service.
