The Department of Planning engaged in a community outreach today (25 May) of the importance of the building code at “Tool fest” at AL Thompson’s.
Contractors, builders, architect and consumers gathered at AL Thompson’s George Town branch to take advantage of the deals and Planning grabbed the opportunity to educate the community on the building code which they say can save lives.
” We live in a high wind, high seismic area and especially now we are in the hurricane season. So building codes enable us to build to withstand high winds and seismic activities. It’s safe,” said Ms. Picard.
