Re: Re: Building control
To ensure a satisfactory system the Building Regulation monitoring process should encompass all three procedures:
1. The submission of building regulation compliant drawings to the Building Control Authority for assessment and approval prior to construction.
2. Regular site inspections by Building Control officers during construction.
3. Certification on completion only by an architect who has prepared production drawings and supervised the construction.
This will ensure lots of work and fees for under-employed architects. It is time to end the ludicrous current system of meaningless ‘waiver-qualified’ certification that has only benefited developer contractors and lost vast amounts of work to architects and resulted in sub-standard construction for the end users and building purchasers.
