The product is underwritten by an ‘A’ rated global insurer & each case is subject to full technical review by Build-Zone Survey Services Limited with the aim of minimising any defects right from the design stage.
Technical services are handled by our in-house team of social housing warranty providers at Build-Zone Survey Services Limited (BZSS). They can facilitate building control for you with one of their partnered approved inspectors. Every inspection is audited by BZSS to give you further peace of mind.
Where building control has already been arranged elsewhere, technical audits are undertaken by one of BZSS's partnered approved inspectors to ensure the project reaches the standard required for the issue of the warranty. Both insurers and Build-Zone understand the value of this service and this is reflected in the premiums that are charged. The sooner that BZSS are involved, the greater the benefit that can be realised.
