From Building networks
This year I have facilitated sessions on changes to the Building Act. The main focus has been on Compliance Schedules. The sections of the Act are insignificant in number compared to the amount of work involved to get the job of an updated Compliance Schedules. So we can have all the knowledge and the facts at hand but its implementable ideas we need. So let’s look at some facts and ask ourselves what have I done with those facts and how they have been implemented?
Often people complain to me that Councils are inconsistent. Their complaints relate to the perception and in some instances reality.
One of my simplest examples is Form 2 – the building consent application form. Why do we really need so many variations on the same form. Gosh, if we had an online consenting system then we would all be forced into one form whether we like it or not.
