Instructor: David Eaton, Senior Technical Development Co-Ordinator





The course is aimed at Site Managers/ Finishing Foreman, Trainee and Assistant Site Managers and anyone involved in the on-site Pre-plaster and handover processes. It is recommended that delegates have some experience with pre plaster and handover snagging process.


Overview of course:


  • Identify what to look for at a pre handover and a pre plaster inspection
  • Show/help the attendees to identify what our surveyors look for to ensure a positive outcome at pre-plaster and handover stage builds and to help raise standards on sites



Duration: 1 Day


Delivered partly on-site and partly in-classroom, this course equips staff with the knowledge of what to look for when conduction a pre-handover, and pre-plaster inspection.

A robust understanding of these inspection processes will lead to improved standards on site, and demonstrate what “good” sites look like at this stage of the building process.

Throughout the sessions, your Premier Guarantee trainer will offer delegates guidance on how to prepare for a pre-plaster and pre-handover inspection, and how to ensure handover inspections are completed effectively.


Part one: Visiting a suitable pre plaster and handover on site


Attendees will visit a site and carry out two inspections of a property at pre-plaster and pre-handover stage.

The purpose of the visit is to identify what to look for at the pre-handover and pre-plaster stages, aiming to show the delegates what Premier Guarantee surveyors look for to ensure a positive outcome at this stage of building a home.

Your Premier Guarantee trainer will observe and take pictures of the two stages, which will be reviewed and discussed in the second part of the one-day session.


Part two – Travel to a venue to discuss the findings


Following the site visits, the session will be taken to a suitable nearby training or meeting room to discuss the findings in the first session. Particular attention will be paid to whether the images taken comply with Premier Guarantee's Technical Manual standards, helping learners identify non-compliant work.

As the guidance in the Technical Manual is based on real-world claims history, understanding how to achieve the standards laid out in the manual makes it more likely that pre-plaster and pre-handover stages are completed smoothly.


All attendees will discuss the following points:


• What "good" looks like at pre-plaster.
• The barriers to delivering high-quality homes at handover.
• What can be done to remove/manage any barriers, and develop a personal action plan for what will be done differently after the training course

• What will be fed back to the company.
