It is the Organisation’s objective to carry out all measures reasonably practicable, to meet, exceed or develop all necessary or desirable requirements and to continually improve environmental performance through the implementation of the following:
- Assess and regularly re-assess the environmental effects of the Organisation’s activities.
- Training of employees in environmental issues.

Millard Consulting has two full-time staff who are Approved Certifier’s of Design under the Structural Engineers Registration Ltd (SER Ltd) scheme.
With the introduction of the Building (Scotland) Act 2003 the structural engineering community was encouraged to take a comprehensive and engaged overview of the construction process from design to the approval of construction.
The Act encouraged a holistic overview from design to completion of any building project by enabling an engineer who is a member of the Scheme as an Approved Certifier of Design (Building Structures) to certify the structural design of buildings in Scotland and to include a certificate with the application to Local Authorities for Building Warrant.
The certifying engineer is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of the design of the structure of a project satisfy the requirements of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004. The new legislation also makes engineers who are responsible for building structures specifically aware of their responsibilities and duties in the design, thus improving assurance of structural safety.
Having the SER certification process in-built to our Structural Engineering Service is a cost-efficient and quality assured way of ensuring Building Warrant for the design of a client’s structure.
Strict procedures are adhered to in accepting applications by individual engineers and firms for registration to SER Ltd.
