Welcome to the eight edition of the Weekly BRegs Weekly for 2016: edition 57 of BRegs Weekly is out now.
No solution in sight as the Department of the Environment programme for roll-out of temporary prefabricated homes for homeless families was postponed. The saga in Longboat Quay continues this week for unfortunate owners who face significant costs to repair defects in their development. The lack of an adequate national Defects Liability Insurance (DLI) suggests that owners of future defective developments will face similar delays and legal battles to have defects remediated. The Bregs Blog featured an analysis confirming that it is still cheaper to buy than to build housing, despite efforts by Ministers Kelly and Coffey to reduce standards and costs.
This week we continue the new section “Top Posts” looking back at some of the big issues that are still relevant.
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. Publication was delayed for this edition due to IT issues.
We recommend signing up for an automatic subscription to keep up with the discussion surrounding the current annual review of the BC(A)R, and more recent media articles and stories about building control and the impacts on the consumer and construction industry.
