I find a certain level of irony that Planning/Building Control are one of those having to run away before it falls on them. The phrase, 'You had one job.....' seems apt.

Apparently there was a build up of brown stuff (B.S.) in the rafters. It had been designed to operate with B.S. for 25 years, but apparently there has been a huge out of control increase in B.S. Several tons of B.S. in fact putting great strain on the whole system.

'Tent is a covered football/hockey pitch for the new school. Da White Hoose is apparantly rented from SLAP, the  Shetland Charitable Trust property wing. But as its under 10 years old it should be the builders problem?

Oh that what the white tent is for, I thought it was the new indoor riding school or one large communal tent instead of the campsite.

 

As for the original post you just couldn't make it up.

 

Building regs did good job at signing that one off.

Depends.  Be interesting to see whether there was a 10 year warranty on par with NHBC (although they do offer them too for commercial properties) and/or whether or not it turns out to be a design fault (architect)/load miscalculation (structural engineer)/insufficient foundations ... might end up a nice insurance claim, who knows?

I'm surprised that this office was ever allowed to be built at the North Ness  next to a fuel depot with a ship repair yard next to it.

 

Welding torches,aceylene  and oxygen cylinders.power tools,guess it must meet health and safety 

 

Probably lucky it is only a little subsidence(if that should be the problem) and that it is not the whole thing going  ,**BOOM BOOM**.

:evil:

Well, if it is subsidence,

 

you know why that is - the big head know it all's in the basement (planning and building regs).

They might have to move to the old AHS building after the new one is complete.

Lets hope the new AHS doesn't have any problems - after all SIC involved, better be careful with signing that one off.

I think we should be glad its being built where it is, right down in the bottom of a natural hole, where there's least chance of any bits blowing off. That tent, I'm not so confident about......a SE'er on that corner can pack quite a smack.

True - but give it some time the White tent probably won't be white for long. I can only imagine a disgusting colour,  unless they intend cleaning it regularly.

Are you sure it has anything to do with the people who built it?? And not an issue with the design or structural calculations that were decided on? A company building things normally have to follow a spec which has to be signed off, and if the work is meeting the specs you can hardly blame the contractor, look at the balls up that was made of the Sumburgh runway extension, it could be seen it wouldn't work but people were following designs and specs laid out which had to be followed, or look at the moorfield hotel, built by south company's and the tiles blew off and it leaks!
