GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE

THIS DIRECTIVE APPEARED ON THE NOTICE BOARDS IN OUR UK FACTORY Dated: 16.04.2005.
GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE   by: Chris Thorpe


The term GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE applies to the industry from the design concept of a project to completion of the development. It simply means that a design, practice, or operation concerning a construction, should be undertaken to the highest standards.

Although there are strict rules governing building control such as Building Regulations and Robust Detail Compliance - these should be considered to be the minimal standards that we at Timber Engineering Europe comply with during the course of our day to day activities.

GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE is a standard, which exceeds or includes a contribution or a procedure that is not called for within Building Regulations , Robust Detail or any other International Code.

GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE is common sense, application and removal of doubt. Many times this may be referred to as "Over-Engineering". Although this may sometimes be the case, we must always aim to improve our products and services. Because all buildings are different, the rules and regulations laid down may not necessarily cover a particular design, although the designer will have complied in the areas he is responsible for and noted his instructions on a drawing. The building is however reliant on you to translate the respective rules and where necessary in the absence of instruction, use your experience, that of others and logic by applying GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE.

The expression QUALITY BUILDING does not necessarily mean that the property has an expensive bathroom, kitchen, fixtures & fittings. This term is also applied to a property that has been built in accordance with GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE.

Care, consideration and application are therefore a major contribution to being recognised as a quality builder who will always engage in GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE.

All new contributions to Timber Engineering Europe GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE manual will be the included and implemented if they help to improve our services and products and especially if they benefit our clients.

If you can identify any improvements to our systems, having regard to the foregoing information using GOOD BUILDING PRACTICE applications, please advise Peter Stuart or Chris Thorpe.

If in doubt, don't use it - If it improves it, adopt it.
