Specialist Contractors are responsible for the construction of the building envelope. They may undertake the installation themselves or may use an installation sub-contractor.

The Specialist Contractor is also responsible for detaiiled design and should be able to design for buildability taking account of tolerances, component sizes and configuration.

The employment of a Specialist Contractor with appropriate skills and experience is essential if the building envelope is to be erected on time to the required standard. Advice on procurement is available here.
