Re: Re: Architect Registration
Sure, I’ve looked through other foundation options.
But if someone go outside what’s in the building regs, they may need to
get the “new” structural elements signed off by an engineer.
This, of course, adds to the costs for the home builder and gives him more
to ponder on — both undesirable facets to the people getting a house built.
To my view, the whole question of house foundations should be tidied up by
the Dept of Environment drafting more comprehensive regulations that reflect
the increased desirability of other foundations methods, particularly those
which allow better insulation to underfloor & external wall foundation legs.
Somehow, I do not anticipate any significant Gormley-style initiatives on
construction design from Mr Hogan . . . . :yawn:
