When were you taught about the magic triangle of building controls (Building Act, NZ Building Code, Compliance Documents hierarchy)?
A lot of brand new building controls staff were taught this by me. For the first time… and yet they had been in the building industry (as builders, plumbers, architects and designers). As I have found out first hand this building controls stuff is NOT taught at Polytechnic nor at University anywhere near the extent I think it should. It’s like training expert formula one drivers and mechanics and then letting them loose on the motorway with no idea to keep left, speed limits and other rules of the game.
If you have read this and still don’t know what I am talking about then follow this link and hook yourself up with this PDF E-Book 101 Rules of the Building Game in NZ.
