Application Criteria

For construction related programmes/projects, you must be able to provide the following documents before any consideration is given to your application:

  1. Deed and cadastral sheet providing proof of ownership
  2. Town & Country Approval
    This approval states as a prerequisite approvals by WASA, the Municipal Corporation and T & T Fire Services
  3. EMA (Environmental Management Authority) Approval
  4. Complete set of Drawings (Architectural, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical) prepared by registered professionals
    If they are prepared by registered professionals, the designs are supposed to be to the relevant International Building Standards for the respective disciplines and the likelihood of design errors will be minimized. The Bank will not invest in a structure that may subsequently show signs of distress due to poor design practices.
  5. Quantity Surveyor's Estimate and Contractor's Quotation
    These documents will confirm pricing consistencies and can be used as a yardstick to facilitate omissions and additions should this become necessary.
  6. Arrangements for Construction Administration
    Even the best plans can produce an unsatisfactory result if not properly administered; therefore it is imperative that competent construction administration is considered.
