27 May 2016 – BRegs Weekly 18- Edition 67
Welcome to the eighteenth edition of the Weekly BRegs Weekly for 2016: edition 67 of BRegs Weekly is out now.
This week the Housing Agency published a report confirming high existing building vacancy rates and suggested that tackling the area of building ‘voids’ could supply over 50,000 units in the short term.
The Oireachtas committee on Homelessness and Housing saw more presentations from industry stakeholders and charitable housing agencies. Ireland’s defective system of private self-certification came into focus again this week with the discovery of significant roof defects in Longboat Quay in Dublin.
Elsewhere in the media industry commentators suggested significant defects will continue in the residential sector under our current private system due to continued lack of adequate Building Control enforcement and oversight.
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.
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.
