The main purpose of this blog is to provide information relating to common building and property related issues. This will include subjects relating to Building Defects, Professional Work such as Building Regulation, Planning and the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
The aim is to post information to help support students and members of the public, as well as to tackle topical issues as they arise. Also, those undertaking professional qualifications such as Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) and similar accrediting bodies, may find postings of interest.
I have been working as Chartered Building Surveyor for over 12 years and prior to my current role at Coventry University I worked in Private Professional Practice, dealing with a wide range of professional activities and projects. Even so, information posted on this blog should not be relied upon by any person or any third party without first seeking further professional advice.
If there is a particular topic or problem you would like covered please let me know.
