What is involved in a validation and verification check?
A building services validation is an inspection of plant and installations to assess three main criteria:
- Physical condition
It includes taking readings and recording comprehensive data on all existing mechanical, electrical and controls systems to create thorough documentation in the form of a validation report. This allows engineers to give advice on what remedial work is needed to bring your installation or building up to standard.
Compliance reporting is particularly important if you are considering occupying a space where existing building services are to be retained or altered to suit a new layout or level of occupation. By identifying any areas of potential non-compliance early on, remedial works can be included in refurbishment contracts.
