Re: Re: Building control
all the above is pointless unless the current aim of 10 – 15% of new builds visits is increased to at least 50%.
Building control resources in most counties is a joke, resulting in a necessity of action on a ‘reactive’ basis from public alerts rather than in a proactive manner.
Regarding ‘external certification’… i can definitely see this as the way to go. architects opinion on compliance will eventually be restricted to ‘planning’ and the majority of building reg certification will be done by external certifiers…. ie Energy Regs, Disabled Access, fire regs, Ventilation regs, structure etc etc.
