Why I want teach

Point 5

I want to be involved in creating an environment where the conversation is complimentary. As an organisation we do not want to be reinventing the wheel. This industry is very isolating. Sometimes the only consistant conversation a contractor may have is with those around him and maybe the building inspector. I believe that as our industry is mainly made up of men. The attributes of the industry are reflection of men's attributes. Isolation,independance,focus,competition and so on. These are positive and negative issues. My personal skill is working with the guys on the ground.Our industry will require an organisation that guides,supports and encourages to have better building business'.  Below is a sacremento based similar organisation which I would like to see replicated here.

Next time I post it will be after our first footings seminar.

Material suppliers

 It is our recommendation and our conviction that  you are better protected by "Codemark" approved products. Global website. website. Currently these organisations are the only organisations qualified to assess to the level of compliance to  the Australian and New Zealand building code.

This issue alone should SHOCK you into creating a family trust away from your business. 

Further information on our first night

Point 3

All our building sites require a good system that measures what products were used. Was it installed as per the manufacturers specifications. Does it match the consented plans and finally does it comply to all the relevant codes and New Zealand Standards.

Initially I would like to reinforce the council seminars with pre-inspection checklists. All council Building Inspectors will now be using a checklist system to capture all of the above issues. My intention would be to help our members with the interpretation of these checklists and teach where the information comes from.
