Construction is a complex industry with many layers of responsibility, so where does the blame lie when things go wrong? Builders, if they’re still around, are the first port of call. But private certifiers or building surveyors say they’re often the ones unfairly accused of missing defects. Many in the industry say the rules just aren’t tough enough to enforce accountability or stop those cutting corners.
GEOFF HANMER, ARCHITECT: It’s almost incomprehensible but government has had an agenda to reduce regulation at a point where buildings have become more complex and probably require a higher standard of regulation.
