For Technical Officers

This is the section of our website for Technical Officers working on home improvements, repairs and adaptations. The resources focus on the more unique aspects of this role - delivering relatively small scale building works in private homes.

You will find information on your professional developments, current technical regulations and a section to pose any questions you may have.

Please use the menu links on the left for information on topics including:

  • Construction Design & Management (CDM) Regulations
  • Building Contracts
  • Procurement including our online tender portal (DFG Tenders)
  • Professional development

You may also be interested in our home adaptation design guides.

We hold a series of regional Technical Officer meetings at OTAC conferences around England where you can get the latest updates and network with colleagues in other areas.

If you have suggestions for other resources that you would find useful, please email us.
