Jeff Maxted, Director of Technical Consultancy, will be attending and speaking at the BOPAS Briefing on Wednesday 22 March in Chatham, Kent.
The Buildoffsite Property Assurance Scheme (BOPAS) has been developed by Lloyd's Register EMEA, Building LifePlans, Buildoffsite, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Council of Mortgage Lenders 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, built 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 BOPAS certification is a recognised means to manage financial and construction risk and is proving to be of particular interest to private purchasers requiring a mortgage, institutional investors in new public and private sector housing developments, and client groups including RSLs and LAs.
The briefing will provide an overview of BOPAS Certification and its role in supporting innovative forms of house-building.
