Live Brief case study: H&O Consulting and ARU Building Surveying students

Building Control inspection company H&O Consulting worked with ARU Building Surveying students on a Live Brief to produce designs for a client’s residential improvement project in readiness for a building control application, including technical details of alterations and extensions to the property, and compliance with all relevant building standards and regulations.

Students presented their designs and specifications to Rob Handley, Director at H&O Consulting, who in turn gave the students valuable detailed feedback. 

The students addressed the deficiencies with the existing accommodation to plan alterations and extensions to provide a modern family home, considering shortcomings in terms of facilities and producing an outline specification that set out how they intended to create the new space.
