The Clerk of Works Offering at EPM

A typical construction project involves hundreds of people including consultants, authorities, builders, tradesmen, manufacturers, and suppliers. Construction is heavily regulated through the National Construction Code that also incorporates Australian Standards. Why is it then that poor quality in construction is prevalent in so many buildings, so much so that government has had to introduce even stricter regulations to address the most concerning kinds of defects involving building structures, fire safety and water proofing.
