“Working with L&Q and LABC Warranty has been a pleasure"

"The whole process has been transparent between all three parties, and my comments from a building control point of view have been welcomed.  The close partnership between L&Q’s team, the LABC Warranty Surveyor team, and Waltham Forest Building Control was crucial to that transparency."

"LABC Warranty was vital from very early on in delivering The Chain."

"During the design stage they met with us regularly to make sure everyone was happy and confident about pre-construction choices. They worked with our teams to set out clear expectations, and offered training to help our staff on site know what they would be looking for, like details around the waterproof envelope. We were impressed by the quality of their technical expertise, their professionalism, and their investment in making sure the development was a success.”

"We experienced a real engagement of the whole site team from as early as the design review"

“On the South Grove scheme we experienced a real engagement of the whole site team from as early as the design review to ensure confidence in the designs issued for construction stage to be progressed with no changes or delays to the build.”
