Connect

We introduce you to first-rate professionals, so you’re in safe hands throughout your project.

What is Connect?

Connect is a complimentary service that ensures you get the very best during each stage of your project. From contractors, suppliers, to the professionals you’ll need to comply with building regulations.

Building regulations

Structural Engineers

Just as the name suggests, structural engineers are concerned with everything that makes your house stand up. They’re a vital part of the building regulations process and will work with Resi to produce the technical equations needed to secure building control approval.

When starting the building regulations process, finding a structural engineer will be one of the very first steps.

Party wall surveyors

Party Wall Surveyors

If you’re doing works near or on a wall, boundary, or outbuilding shared with a neighbour, then you’ll need to have them signed off with a party wall notice. If you fail to get written consent, then a party wall agreement will be needed. A party wall surveyor will assess both yours and your neighbour's property to help draw up this documentation.

If necessary, we’ll guide you through this process and recommend party wall surveyors during the building regulations stage.

Cctv drainage surveyors

CCTV Drainage Surveyors

CCTV refers to the camera these professionals use to check the health of your drainage system. They’ll map out your drains, and check to see if your project will run into any potential issues in this area. Your surveyor might then recommend you get a build over agreement in place before any construction starts.

Resi will assess whether or not this professional will be required when starting your building regulations journey.

Contractors

Contractors

Contractors can either make or break a project, that’s why Resi tries to find you the best tradespeople for the job. All our recommended builders have been vetted by our team or are part of our TrustMark partnership. This means you can start construction in a safe pair of hands.

To keep things running smoothly, we’ll advise when it’s time to put your home out for tender, usually during the building regulations stage.

How we pick our professionals

In order to select the best professionals, we vet them in one of three ways…

  • 1. We’ve worked with them in the past

    Our team has been in the business for nearly 20 years, and have brought on board companies they’ve seen deliver time and time again.

  • 2. Product assessment

    Our Connect team will thoroughly check previous work and talk to previous clients to ensure they’re the real deal.

  • 3. TrustMark

    Since 2019, any new contractor added to Connect will be part of TrustMark’s quality scheme.
