Eoin Ó Broin, a TD who’s written a book called Defects, chats through the issue of quality control when building a house in ROI. He talks about:
- How the building control system works in ROI and why it’s broken
- Opting in or out of appointing an assigned certifier
- How we got to this point
- Prospects of changes to the system
- Where to next
Eoin was also rapporteur for the Oireachtais Joint Committee on Housing, Planning & Local Government’s report published in December 2017, entitled “Safe as Houses? A Report on Building Standards, Building Controls & Consumer Protection”.
