A risk management surveyor will be assigned to your project whose first task will be to undertake a technical audit. We will work with you to create your bespoke technical inspection plan.
As agreed in the technical audit your risk management surveyor will undertake onsite inspections.
Our surveyors will bring items of concern to the attention of the site management team who can then discuss resolutions with the principal designer. Following site visits, our surveyors will prepare a report which will highlight any areas of construction which require further consideration by the principal designer.
On final inspection, your risk management surveyor will be able to approve your project so that you can receive your certificate of insurance and building control certificate.
It's fantastic to work with the building inspector at Premier Guarantee as he is just as passionate as we are in helping to deliver premium homes.
We have a great professional relationship that is based on excellent communication. We feel very supported by our building inspector who visits us on site and provides knowledgeable advice.

I have worked with Premier Guarantee for at least eight years and I have always liked the collaborative approach taken by the various inspectors. You really get the feeling that they care about the project and will work with the site teams to ensure that the best quality is achieved.
If there is a difficult detail then the [Premier Guarantee] inspector is willing to take the time to look for solutions alongside the site team.
Paul Whitlam, Build Manager, Crest Nicholson
Our journey with Premier Guarantee has been fantastic!
Having PG so involved at the early stages of the technical design process is crucial to helping our commercial team start the procurement process.
Tristan Tomkins, Construction Director, Stonebond
Our dealings with Premier Guarantee have been very positive and we feel that they have been supportive of our business. Good communication is key and having a good working relationship is extremely important.
Richard Bass, Development Director, Amethyst Homes
The experience working with Premier Guarantee has very much been a positive one. The site team and I have always maintained a very good relationship with all Premier [Guarantee] inspectors we have worked with on site.
The experience with Premier Guarantee compared with other warranty providers has also been more positive as this is a very fast-moving site and so PG have had to be flexible with inspections and the stages viewed, which has led to an inspection regime that suits both Premier and our build programme.
