Property Care Association
The Property Care Association (PCA) is an industry-recognised membership programme that represents specialists who have been vetted for their experience, training and qualifications regarding the investigation of building defects.
Established back in 1930, Property Care Association members are qualified to inspect and resolve problems with damp, condensation, waterproofing, structural decay or flood protection. They aim to promote high standards of professionalism and expertise within the industry through training and other support services. Striving to promote the work of the association, the PCA provides an ‘industry voice’ on behalf of members.
This association work alongside the relevant government departments, providing appropriate documentation and assistance with any new guidelines to ensure all outcomes are continually improved.
The Property Care Association promotes excellence through:
- Measuring all members against a strict set of membership criteria – PCA members are required to undertake a variety of training courses and appropriate qualifications focusing on their specialist area of expertise.
- Ongoing audits ensure members are operating to the highest standards – Company systems, procedures and health & safety practises are routinely assessed to guarantee high quality.
- Site inspections for all members – Independent inspectors are used to visit recent project sites and confirm that good practise has been maintained within the premises, and operations have taken place in the best interest of the client.
