ORS provided Assigned Certifier services at Plaza 211, Blanchardstown Corporate Park, Ballycoolin, Dublin 15. This energy efficient building has achieved an A2 energy rating and LEED Gold certification. In our capacity as the assigned certifier, we carried out a series of BCAR meetings where we defined the roles and responsibilities of each of the parties including the builder and design team members. The designer and sub-contractor documentation requirements were also defined at an early stage as a result of our meetings.
As there is a high proportion of glazed façade for the external envelope of the building, ORS conducted separate workshops with the Fire Safety Engineer, Façade Designer, Architect and Builder to establish the inspection regime specifically for building regulations compliance with Part B – Fire Safety and Part L – Conservation of Fuel and Energy, which proved to be valuable process at the completion stage, with detailed tracking of inspection information and testing.
