Re: Single Family Home design + Construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Although these types of errors and omissions could happen anywhere, my guess 
is that it happens far more in areas that have no review requirements for 
building permits. Other than west coast of the US and the neighboring states 
I cannot think of anywhere else that requires a detailed review of plans and 
calculations for any type of building permit. The lack of a check and balance 
is one the culprits of many of these problems in building design. We all know 
that even the best engineers could sometimes overlook stuff during design. 
Having a second set of eyes look at a design before it gets to the 
construction site would at least reduce the chances of any gross mistakes 
being made.

Happy  thanksgiving everyone
