From Building networks
A recent encounters with mother nature.
While we may not have the ability to control all these external matters we do the ability to control how we respond to these challenges.
So, welcome to the New Year.
So I have been going with the holiday flow and it’s been a great tonic. I am usually the one who pushes or pulls to get something done. But a very wise person encouraged me to go with the flow and so I am trying something new. It’s required a bit of retraining on my part but it’s been worth it. So now my challenge is to hold onto that flow feeling whilst back in the thick of my work life☺
A colleague and I have been chatting about the state of building controls in NZ. My colleague says that the building industry just want to be told what to do, not to be mucked around and to get it right first time. If that’s true…then we need prescription not 101 options. Too many options promotes confusion. I wonder how much time has been wasted on optional options?
When were you taught about the magic triangle of building controls (Building Act, NZ Building Code, Compliance Documents hierarchy)?
Look what has sneaked up on you just in time for Christmas..
Building (Exempt Building Work) Order 2010 amends Schedule 1 of the Building Act. This takes effect from 23 December 2010 – just in time for those summer projects!
