CONSTRUCTION companies are still not ready to comply with the Technical Building Code, which will come into force nationally from September 29, and which consists of an amalgamation of all the previous laws and a tightening of quality controls among other things. Representatives of the Official College of Architects and the Official College of Master Builders and directors of the Associations of Promotors and Builders yesterday took part in a meeting presided over by the director general of the Architecture department, Isabel Borrego, to discuss the repercussions of this law.The director of the Official College of Master Builders, Jaime Gibert, said that it is very difficult to keep a strict control of the quality of materials used in the construction industry and asked what sort of professionals ask the builder to supply documentation as to the origin and composition of the materials. Gibert added that we welcome the new law because we were expecting it, and that this should stop, and that we will not take responsibility for things that are the responsibility of others. The director of the Official College of Architects, Salvador Juan, said that there are many hidden aspects in the Technical Building Code and that confusing situations are being created which, in his opinion, will end in uncontrolled inequality.
