Practical post 6: We have an architect and engineer on board but neither of them will take on being Assigned Certifier.

We have an architect and engineer on board but neither of them will take on being Assigned Certifier.

Many professionals have concerns about future liabities and increasing PI (professional indemnity) insurance costs. In your situation, you can engage any other registered professional (architect, engineer or building surveyor) to take on this role alongside your existing team. The cost should not be any more than if your existing architect or engineer did this extra role.

This independent person can be an extra pair of eyes on the site and will also be responsible for putting together the full Completion Certificate file of documents for the local authority.

Directories of registered professionals in you area can be found through the professional bodies:

ACEI – The Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland: http://www.acei.ie/

SCSI – The Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland: http://www.scsi.ie/

RIAI – The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland: http://www.riai.ie/

NOTE: This series of posts is not meant to undermine or be in opposition to any professional advice from registered representative bodies: rather it is to offer additional technical aids to those that find themselves in the unenviable position of having to deal with SI.9 in it’s current form at present. As with all information posted on the Blog we urge all practitioners to check with their respective professional bodies before assuming any roles or duties under Building Control (Amendment) regulation (SI.9 of 2014). We hope to post a number of these practical posts and list in one area, so home owners, SME’s and professionals can drop in and click on a particular topic to get summary information that may be useful to them while working within these new and difficult regulations.
