EWS1 Forms &
Building Safety Fund

What is the

EWS process/form?

The EWS process and resulting form was introduced by the RICS to enable building owners to confirm that an external wall system on residential buildings has been assessed for combustibility and spread of flame by a suitable expert.
The process involves a “qualified professional” conducting a survey of the external wall system before signing a suitably completed EWS1 form which is then valid for the entire building for 5 years.

A team you can trust

Established in 1971 and operating from five offices across the Country, we are a Building Top 100 consultancy practice and one of only a few practices with suitable Professional Indemnity Insurance to undertake EWS1 Cladding Surveys along with experience of delivering MHCLG Building Safety Fund (BSF) cladding replacement projects.

Securing more than

£15M of funding

Our team have been working on Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) cladding remedial projects since the immediate aftermath of the Grenfell tragedy which includes the three iconic fifteen storey Mount Wise tower blocks in Plymouth. Working closely with Clients we have successfully secured over £15m of MHCLG funding on a number of projects which have been delivered or currently being delivered. We are working on funding applications for a further £12m of cladding remedial projects around the country which we expect to be funded through the original private sector Building Safety Fund launched in 2020.

Our 100% record can help you secure funding

The 2021 Building Safety Fund of £3.5bn has been promised by ministers to remove unsafe cladding from high-rise buildings over 18 meters in England "at no cost to residents''. Like previous Building Safety Funds, we expect the fund to be oversubscribed with all projects assessed against key criteria. Bailey Partnership has a proven track record of delivering Building Safety Fund projects and has successfully secured funding for 100% of cladding replacement project applications.
