Martin Arnold Achieves Champion status for Building a Safer Future

We are delighted and are extremely proud to announce we have been awarded a Building a Safer Future Champion by Dame Judith Hackitt herself, through the Building a Safer Future Charter.

We are especially proud of this achievement because we are the first Multidisciplinary Construction Consultant, to receive this award and we feel it represents all the hard work that everyone in our organisation has done and is doing everyday together, in collaboration to put Building Safety first.

Our Champion status lasts for 2 years, but we are determined to continue to demonstrate that our approach to building safety across our work, our organisation and our culture supports and encourages our commitments. We are worthy BSF Champions but – most importantly – we want to encourage and support others to place building safety as the top priority in all construction projects we are involved in.

Any company in the value chain or life cycle of a building is eligible to apply and we encourage our clients, contractors, and peers to apply to become BSF signatories and demonstrate your own support for the 5 key building safety commitments.

  1. Collaborate to spearhead culture change and be the voice of building safety across our sector,
  2. Be transparent in the interests of safety, sharing key information usefully with, residents, clients, contractors and statutory bodies in a useful and accessible manner in the design, construction and occupation phases of the process,
  3. Make safety a key factor of choice in who we work with, ensuring that building safety is placed at the centre of selection decisions without compromising quality or value for money.
  4. Ensure that the voices and safety of residents, visitors and employees are central to our decision making process
  5. Set out and communicate clear responsibilities within our organisation and with our partners, ensuring everyone with a stake in the building during design, construction and occupation understands their role and has the time and resources they need to achieve and maintain building safety.
