Finding the Best Building Warrant of Fitness Consultant for your Compliance Schedule


Finding the Best Building Warrant of Fitness Consultant for your Compliance Schedule

Like most property managers, you may find yourself wondering whether hiring a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) Consultant is necessary.

What good is a building without a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) anyway? Apparently, without one, no one would risk doing business with you. Why? (1) No tenant or entrepreneur would want their customers and employee’s in harm’s way (2) Having no Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) shows your business priorities and how you deal with the law.

With respect to securing a permit for your operations, hiring a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) expert keeps your property aligned with local council rules and steers you away from band-aid solutions which are more likely to cause you more expenses in the long run – such as higher maintenance costs, as well as the risk of loss of life or injury. You can read more about compliance schedule regulations here.

To cut through the confusion, a compliance schedule is a proactive way for property owners to actively enforce safety checks and regulations within their premises, and after all the necessary IQP inspections have taken place, a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) verifies what happened during the inspection and that the building is fit for business.

A Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant from a trusted compliance firm will certainly make securing permits easier for a hassle-free and cost-effective operation.

Here are things to consider when choosing a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant and the advantages of doing so:

Knowing the ever-changing and progressive Building Acts in New Zealand is important. Whether you are applying for a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF)  in Whangarei or a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) in Northland, most Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultants are updated when it comes to the latest safety laws. But it is important to see if the one you are going to work with has the ability to identify potential problems and violations early in your compliance schedule.

A Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant with impressive foresight will help you cut thousands of dollars from your expenses by averting safety hazards and finding any faults in installed systems. A good Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant is just like a doctor who can catch the signs of illness early on and provides preemptive treatment. Preemptive treatment typically works out cheaper and limits disruption to your business.

It is essential to work with a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF)  consultant who is adaptable and does not easily panic with any slight or significant changes to the original plans and deadlines. This means that you want a team who are reliable and professional when onsite, that have an action plan to take control of those hazards. A Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF)  consultant with unwavering attention to detail will ensure everything is secured and will do so in a well-organised manner. This will help you track the progress of your repairs, reports, and paperwork.

There’s nothing like having a seasoned Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant by your side, a professional that is battle tested by experience and time, and knows the best course of action before the last compliance hurdle comes to a close. There is no more trying here, just knowing. And a well-honed expert only gets this kind of hawk-eyed level of scrutiny on compliance issues if they have seen it a hundred times in various configurations, they know the trouble spots before they start to wreak havoc with your building’s specified systems.

It is important to consider the length and scope of experience of the Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) consultant you are going to work with – how many BWoF assessments have they made in your area? What are the common hazards  the company have solved? Are they used to your industry and business operations? Are they up to date in dealing with a specific systems you may have in your building?

Too often building managers will tend to cut costs where they can, and understandably with too many competing priorities, such decisions can prove to be daunting on a personal level.  One thing, property owners and building managers must realise – a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWoF) is a long-term effort and commitment to safety.
