BOPAS Breakfast Briefing
- Location: Lloyd's Register, London
- Date: 11/07/2018
- Time: 08:00 - 10:30
This Breakfast Briefing will provide an overview of BOPAS Certification and its role in supporting innovative forms of house-building. Jeff Maxted (BLP Director of Technical Consultancy) will be presenting at this event.
The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) has been developed by Lloyd's Register EMEA, Building LifePlans (BLP), Buildoffsite, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) and The Building Society Association to provide assurance to the lending community and valuers, that non-traditional systems of construction can be used in new house-building with total confidence and traceability, with the option of insurance cover to provide additional certainty.
BOPAS certification is available to manufacturers and constructors and will provide confirmation that new properties, constructed using non-traditional forms of construction, will be sufficiently durable to support loans over a period of not less than 60 years. The availability of a BOPAS certification is a recognised means of managing financial and construction risk and serves as a primary getaway to mortgage finance across the sectors including institutional investors in new public and private sector housing developments, and client groups including RSLs and LAs.
