Week 44 edition of BRegs Weekly is out now. The most read post this week is one that confirms that Building Control Regulations introduced last year have added up to €30,000 to the costs of a typical apartment. These costs now apply to all Local Authority buildings, including housing, since September this year. It would appear that Minister Alan Kelly’s plans for a December completion of 22 fast-track modular homes for the homeless may be delayed as a result. Continuing developments regarding fire safety at Longboat Quay are documented in this week’s paper. Today saw the unveiling of a suite of measures aimed to alleviate the housing crisis by the government. Rent certainty measures coupled with CIF/RIAI suggested reductions in apartment standards appears to be the order of the day.
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.
