Weekly Poll (6)


Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, along with the city’s Department of Buildings, announced just last month that there would be major updates taking effect in the city’s building code, including reducing barriers to cost-effective construction and developing a wider range of materials and technologies. The changes represent the first major revisions to the standard in 70 years. Do you think other cities are in need of these kinds of upgrades?


Colorado is revamping its construction defects law to give developers and homeowners a chance to work out problems outside of the courtroom. Is this a good idea?


How often should building codes be revised to stay abreast of any significant building or energy efficient practices?


Many ex-offenders work for construction firms. Should project owners be allowed to dictate whether these, or other contractor employees, may work on a project?


Los Angeles officials are weighing an ordinance that would require property owners to quakeproof thousands of vulnerable buildings within the next 30 years. Good plan?


Who, in your experience, tends most often to be the weakest link in the project team?
