NIA PRESIDENT TONYE OLIVER BRAIDE SPEAKS ON WHY ARCHITECTS SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR CHECKING BUILDING COLLAPSE.

Legislation should be put in place to register every building designed by an architect along with the profile of all consultants responsible for the execution. There must be a responsibility clause to bind the architect to the project until completion and certification for use issued. This will give the impetus for architects to hold maximum control on their projects until completion and under these circumstances failure will then lie squarely on the architect for he will have powers to hire and fire any of the actors in the construction process.
