NB; the design build form of contract is the only way to deliver the Hackitt stakeholder, one party singularly responsible for the end product being fit for purpose, but it must be pure, non-prescriptive or it becomes ambiguous, leading to failure. This exclusive service makes us extra vigilant, hence we have zero failures, zero litigation and every completed project completed during our extended +20 year history, continues to perform, providing desirable, sustainable accommodation for our discerning clients.

Chalcots Estate

The UK got cladding wrong on a massive scale and is in the process of investing huge sums putting it right, if this sounds precarious it’s because it is, please see the following to show the UK is getting re-cladding wrong, due primarily to a design and dump approach as opposed to pure design and build.

Overcladding and Carbon Reduction

By 2050 the UK is committed to reducing its net emissions of greenhouse gases by 100% relative to 1990 levels.

Meeting CDM and
Building Safety Regulations

Appointing contractors you can trust to deliver safe and compliant systems has never been more important. Key to ensuring clients meet CDM and Building Safety Regulations, is ensuring they chose a contractor with the right skills, knowledge and experience (SKE) to deliver cladding works safely and compliantly.

d+b facades have 30 years of proven SKE, with zero fire failures, zero litigation and zero PI claims.
