In our drive for continuous improvement and diversification into new areas of engineering and new regions, Egniol are now certified as an Approved Body for Certification of Design (Building Structures) in Scotland.
The Structural Engineers Registration (Scotland) Scheme (SER) was introduced in response to the requirements of the Building (Scotland) Act 2003 and was established as a result of a joint initiative between the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Scottish Government.
The Certifying Engineer within an Approved Body is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of design of a building project satisfy the requirements of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004. The legislation also makes engineers who are responsible for building structures specifically aware of their responsibilities and duties in the design process, consequently improving the delivery of structural safety both during and post construction. For these reasons, strict assessment procedures are adhered to by SER in considering applications by individual Certifying Engineers and Companies seeking registration as Approved bodies under the SER (Scotland) Scheme.
As an SER (Scotland) Approved Body, Egniol are able to offer clients an effective route to obtaining a Building Warrant for building projects in Scotland.
