Residential retail leisure buildings

Residential, retail & leisure buildings

Investors and developers aim to deliver residential, retail and leisure buildings that are both profitable and in line with end-user demands. Bureau Veritas is there to help you build safely and sustainably.

Meeting consumer demands while maintaining profitability

Your challenges

Today’s residential consumers want an increasingly personalized, pleasant living environment that incorporates digital services while remaining affordable. Developers meanwhile aim to deliver profitable retail and leisure buildings that meet occupiers’ needs. They also must be sure to obtain all necessary building permits and ensure health and safety during the build. And both providers and consumers are increasingly looking for buildings that can be run efficiently and minimize environmental impact.

  • Sustainability 
    Green building is a top priority for many builders around the world. We can put your mind at ease by ensuring your building complies with environmental performance standards or end-user requirements for a healthy work environment. We help obtain certifications such as LEED, HQE and BREEAM while helping meet regulatory requirements, such as obtaining Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). 
  • Asset management support
    Our experts conduct a full inventory and inspection of your asset before devising an Asset Management Plan. Coming full circle, we perform Asset Performance assessments to ensure your asset is being used at its maximum efficiency
  • Regulatory compliance
    Our in-service inspections for equipment such as boilers and electrical systems are geared to help you comply with all regulations.
  • Handover
    As buildings get bigger—with increasingly complex design elements—health, safety and environmental (HS&E) regulations are stricter and more sophisticated. Our Technical Due Diligence service facilitates visual inspections of property transactions and their potential risks.
