BEAL is an independent building product assessment company based north of Wellington and operating throughout Australasia since 2004.
Focusing primarily on cladding, roofing, window and membrane systems for houses, BEAL prides itself on its standard of service and dedication to the needs of its clients.
Led by Principal Building Scientist Colin Prouse, who has specialised in the field for many years, the company has its own highly qualified team as well as access to independent experts from the building industry when the need arises.
With the ever increasing reluctance of councils to accept new products without proof that they comply with the building code in either New Zealand or Australia, BEAL has access to laboratories in both countries to put the products through their paces.
To make the process as simple as possible for clients, the company has designed a Compliance Verification Procedure. This is a template that is filled in to show exactly what needs to be done to make the product comply. This shows clients exactly what needs to be done to meet the requirements of the code and means there are no surprises when it comes to paying the bill.
BEAL also conducts private research. This is where clients approach the company with product ideas and need expert advice on how they should be developed to meet the requirements of the building code.
