To all on the subject of educating contractors: Believe it or not we (NAHB RC the lead organization in partnership with WTCA) are currently working on a large PATH funded project that we are calling the "certified framer" program. Our goal is to have a certification process in place by the end of 2000. We think that this program has the potential to be a benefit to all involved in the construction process and are quite excited that PATH has had enough foresight enough to use government funds on a project that is going to be truly worthwhile. Please write if you have any questions on this. I look at this list about once a week so I would appreciate if any responses to this would include my direct email address qualtim(--nospam--at)msn.com. Thanks for allowing me to share this. We're quite excited about this.

If we devoted as much time lobbying for stricter educational requirements on contractors rather than the path we have taken we might resolve the quality issue and still have affordable housing. >> Dennis, This is one of the best comment that I heard from you! I am both working in design engineering and construction industry so I know what is happening. If the contractor has no design engineering background then at least his superintendent, or project engineer, or project manager shall have design engineering experience. Also, plan checkers shall all be registered engineer and all inspectors shall have design engineering experience in the discipline he is inspecting. Engr. Alfonso S. Quilala Jr., P.E.
