Chartered Association of Building Engineers - "A Building Engineer is a competent, professionally qualified, experienced individual with a critical understanding of the interaction of buildings and people. Building Engineers collaborate to deliver better outcomes for everyone. Using rigorous professional judgement, they understand and manage the complex interplay of materials, technologies, systems and services to improve the function and performance of new and existing buildings. Building Engineers operate across the life-cycle of the built environment encompassing the design, build, maintenance and repurposing of the spaces and places where we live, work and interact."
Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - "As a globally recognised professional body, everything we do is designed to effect positive change in the built and natural environments. Through our respected global standards, leading professional progression and our trusted data and insight, we promote and enforce the highest professional standards in the development and management of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. Our work with others provides a foundation for confident markets, pioneers better places to live and work and is a force for positive social impact."
Local Authority Building Control - the partner authority scheme is shared by all local authority building control teams in England and Wales. McAndrew Associates are partnered with Aylesbury Vale District Council, which means that we submit all of our building regulations applications to them, irrespective of where the job is. Once approved, the work would be inspected by the local authority in whose area the property is located.
The Timber Research and Development Association is an international membership organisation dedicated to inspiring and informing best practice design, specification and use of wood in the built environment and related fields.
