Standards are an important facet of construction, and this will be discussed extensively at the 2019 Construction Industry Council Conference held this month at the GPH.
Designs Limited-Company Director-Vijay Krishnan will be presenting on this topic.
He says as engineers are ultimately responsible for enforcing guidelines in their respective projects, they are then liable in cases of negligence and oversight.
Krishnan also plans to highlight the need for public awareness of fraudulent contractors in the country.
He says the Council needs to address the enforcement of proper regulations for the licensing of contractors and believes this will also lessen the country’s reliance on overseas professionals.
He believes we all have the responsibility to pull together and make sure these building standards are really looked at, that builders are regulated and materials and workman-ship specifications are reviewed, maintained and updated. Krishnan will be in the line-up of reputable presenters on June 14.
