Technical officers

This is the technical corner of our website offering you the technical assistance needed to support someone through an adaptation. You will find information on products, guidance on the latest legislation and a section for your questions for our lead Technical Officer. 

These pages provide our resources 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.


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.
