This has provided world class facilities for the University
Forever 21, Liverpool One
Assent Building Control has recently been engaged to work with developers on a prestigious new £8M, 5 storey city centre Forever 21 retail store in Liverpool.
The store will provide state of the art open plan retail space designed to meet exacting energy performance requirements and to achieve a BREEAM “very good” rating.
Sheffield City College
Assent Building Control worked with Jefferson Sheard Architects to deliver the new campus for Sheffield City College.
The Sheffield City College is a £45 million project based in the centre of Sheffield. When the construction programme ended in Summer 2010, the landmark building consolidated the existing facilities, formerly the Castle College, which were spread between two buildings into one purpose built facility.

Windmill, North Yorkshire
Assent Building Control worked closely with the Client and Project Managers to provide building control services on this bespoke renovation and extension of a windmill to form a highly efficient family dwelling in North Yorkshire.
The project challenges included means of escape from fire and insulation of the existing structure and we worked closely with the Architect to overcome these issues.
Culacre Site, Bolton
Assent Building Control has worked with developers such as Harworth Estates to provide Building Control, Fire Safety and Energy conservation consultancy in respect of various developments including Cutacre site in Bolton.
Early design team involvement has been key in these projects to help our clients get fundamental design issues right first time.
Assent Building Control staff have extensive experience in commercial buildings. The creative offices and retail scheme Ampersand Soho marks UK entry for a top Asian investor.
The scheme was designed by Darling Architects and provides office floors averaging 190 sq. m. around a newly constructed atrium with cantilevered meeting rooms overlooking it.
Heworth Green, York
Assent Building Control provided the building control function for the Heworth Green development in York. The £12 million development offers a total of 60,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation with open plan floor plates of 9540 sq ft.
Many sustainable features were incorporated into the design including a combined heating and cooling system with an integrated heat recovery system to reduce running costs.
Tolent Construction Ltd
River Road, Littlehampton
5 new town houses built on the banks of the River Arun in Littlehampton. Designed by RIBA award winning ‘John Pardey Architects,’ they reflect the Victorian warehouses that once occupied the site and that served the busy mercantile industry along the riverside. The three storey dwellings are built in engineered timber framework supported off a steel deck composite floor slab that transfers the loading to the new piled foundations via a steel framework that forms the open sided car park at ground level. The innovative design retains the Victorian flint and brick facades alongside the new cedar and glass clad elevations to give an interesting blend of ‘old meets new’ whilst overcoming issues such as the risk of flooding and the need to meet today’s energy efficiency requirements that modern day living demands.
