Scope & Challenges

Catalyst were engaged as the Assigned Certifier for both the base build and fit-out works of the Capital Dock project. This responsibility involved overseeing and coordinating the inspections of a large number of design team members, comprising more than 30 individuals. Additionally, Catalyst also managed the inspections of over 65 contractors and subcontractors involved in the project.

Successfully navigating the coordination of multiple stakeholders, compliance with BCAR regulations and inspection management was crucial for Catalyst to fulfil its role as the Assigned Certifier for the Capital Dock project, ensuring compliance, quality, and adherence to building regulations throughout the development of the project.


The effective implementation of Catalyst’s BCAR strategy was instrumental in ensuring the timely commencement, completion and fit-out of the multiple blocks, despite the demanding construction schedule.
