Lewis and Lewis Ltd have been accredited or are members of the following organisations:
RICS – The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – is the pre-eminent organisation of its kind in the world. As such, it represents everything that is good in the property profession. Our members offer the very best advice on a surprisingly diverse range of land, property, construction and related environmental issues. As part of our role, we help to set, maintain and regulate standards. We also provide impartial advice to governments and policy-makers.
LABC is the trading name of District Surveyors Association Limited.
LABC coordinates the technical application of the Building Regulations and influences new or revised regulations covering new technology, new building methods and environmental performance.
LABC also provides a national marketing function to build awareness of local authority building control amongst the public, developers, designers and contractors.
In recent years local authority building control teams have shifted the emphasis of their work from “tick box” checking at the end of building projects to helping developers, designers and builders to make the best choices when planning projects. This change of emphasis achieves high quality building without annoying and expensive corrections happening late in the construction phase.
Lewis and Lewis Ltd are able to offer a unique partnership with Newport and Cardiff City Council to ensure a practical approach to obtaining Building Regulation approval.
Partnering allows a company (called the Partner Company) to link with a local authority of its choosing (the Partner Authority) for the plans approval of all or any of its projects, so eliminating inconsistency, uncertainty and delays.
Lewis and Lewis Ltd have recently become an approved signatory of the The Prompt Payment Code.
The Prompt Payment Code is another critical step in a series of structured initiatives devised by the government with The Institute of Credit Management (ICM) to tackle the crucial issue of late payment and help small businesses especially. Suppliers can have confidence in any company that signs up to the code that they will be paid within clearly defined terms, and that there is a proper process for dealing with any payments that are in dispute. This is an exciting development, and we shall regularly monitor its performance to ensure best practice is being followed.
