Building Confidence: How to use engineers to improve building and construction
“The building and construction industry needs to actively participate in lifting standards, competency and integrity if it is to produce safe and reliable buildings….”
As a response to this call, Engineers Australia convened a building industry working group to develop a paradigm for good practice of engineers across the building sector. Members of the working group came from various sectors and jurisdictions within the building industry.
This paradigm supports many of the Building Confidence report recommendations and is intended to:
• Improve the likelihood that the building production system (design, fabrication, construction) gets it right every time. Sign off by an Engineer of Record; and
• Improve the likelihood that the building approval process (verification) gets it right every time. Verification by a Proof Engineer.
