The BBA, a leading technical assessment and certification body in the UK, and Lucideon, the international materials technology company, are pleased to announce the forging of a closer co-operation, a move designed to provide the construction industry with improved certification and testing services.
The BBA offers a construction product approval scheme, Agrément Certification, which provides reassurance to suppliers. The collaboration between the two parties will see an expansion in this certification service, thanks to the extensive, flexible and efficient testing services that the BBA and Lucideon are able to provide.
Dr Geoff Edgell, Director and Principal Construction Consultant at Lucideon, said:
“Lucideon have a long history of collaboration with the BBA enabling innovative products to access the construction market backed by sound certification and relevant testing. The new arrangements will ensure more efficient delivery and better co-ordination of these complementary activities. Whether it be in the delivery of new housing, the refurbishment of existing housing or off-site construction to support high-rise city developments, the scope for innovation is vast and continually growing; efficient delivery of these services is going to be a vital element in the future of construction.”
