Week 42 edition of BRegs Weekly is out now. Minister Alan Kelly announce plans for 22 fast-track modular homes for the homeless to be completed by mid-December. CIF and industry stakeholders RIAI and SCSI continued to put pressure on Government to reduce building standards and improve affordability. Senior Planner Kieran Rose, author of 2007 housing space standards, defended measures already in place at a housing conference last week.
The Carrickmines halting site tragedy continued to remind all of the devastating consequences of inadequate fire safety measures*.
The BRegs Weekly e-zine gathers all recent social media discussions relating to Building Control Regulations into one weekly digest. It is published every Friday and gives a round-up of news highlights for the week.
