Pre-Construction Advice & Other Advice: Pre-Construction or Pre-installation advice is provided on structural shielding and layout. We will liaise with your architect or builder to ensure the best possible design to optimise staff and public radiation safety. This can avoid costly reparative work where any structural issues or non-compliances are identified during a post-installation risk assessment. The risk assessment can be conducted prior to construction, based on architectural drawings and information from the client. This service will normally be included in the overall RPA service. However, if you require this advice (or any other radiation safety advice) but do not wish to commit to appointing us as your RPA at this stage, please contact us for a quote at firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete the quotation enquiry form.
