Nicol Thomas has also led successful BREEAM and Passivhaus schemes. Our training and experience ensures the specification of environmentally friendly but also cost-effective and proven solutions.

Our assessors can provide advice to Clients early into a project with regard to scheme specific sustainability issues, highlighting any potential impacts on scheme design or costs. We actively encourage our clients to see the inclusion of sustainable design as adding value to a project, through mitigating the impact of the build on the environment, reducing running costs and providing unique selling points to their developments.

Regular site inspections by our Clerk of Works monitor both quality and adherence to the building contract specification.

Most projects that Nicol Thomas are involved with are deemed notifiable with regard to the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.  In the case of such notifiable projects, clients must appoint a competent CDM co-ordinator.  Nicol Thomas provide this service and give advice to clients on how to meet their duties as set out in these regulations.
