An EOR violating the building code is negligent per se

This is true, however the plaintiff still must prove that this violation actua
lly AND proximately caused the damages complained of.  Negligence per se 
simply proves that the EOR had a duty and had breached that duty. The rest of 
a negligence analysis must be proven by the plaintiff.
You can be proven to have breached a duty, but if your acts did not 
proximately caused the damages, you are NOT liable.
