Building Surveying Journal

The latest Building Surveying Journal December 2017 – January 2018is available from the RICS website.

Barney Hatt, the editor says: " In this issue, RICS Global Building Standards Director Gary Strong reviews our own policy initiatives since the (Grenfell Tower) fire, including plans to develop an international standard on fire safety and a government-backed national register of fire risk assessors with other organisations.

Elsewhere in the edition, we take up the theme of dilapidations, with Paul Spaven reporting on the RICS Dilapidations Forum Conference, Jon Rowling clarifying the meaning of supersession and Vivien King looking at RICS’ dilapidations disputes resolution scheme.

In other pieces, William Glassey and James Morris consider the RICS Conflicts of interest global professional statement, encouraging members and regulated firms to have appropriate procedures in place by 1 January, James McAllister and Stuart Frame unpick the complicated context in which surveyors operate when they offer legal advice, Trevor Rushton scrutinises the performance of cladding systems, and Laurence Cobb weighs up the pros and cons of insurance-backed guarantees."
