Here are the top read posts for July. Notwithstanding the holidays we equaled our second highest ever monthly level with over 20,600 views, we were nominated for a Blog Award Ireland and reached a milestone 125,000 views. Many thanks again to all our readers. This month we saw:

  • Vivian Cummins and Caomhan Murphy, architects and council members of the representative body for architects (RIAI), both had personal opinion pieces on the difficulties faced by practitioners under BCAR SI.9.
  • The evolving status of the Architectural Technologist featured. We detailed a Department meeting with both the RIAI and Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) on a separate register for Architectural Technologists. We noted the CIAT Register going live on 31st July.
  • The alarming lack of consumer protection for developer-led speculative projects under SI.9 was highlighted.
  • We noted an RIAI EGM which is scheduled for the 12th August 2014. It has been requested by members to call on the new Minister to Revoke SI.9.
  • Readers were getting into the technical issues associated with design certification, inspection plans and ancillary certifiers  in a number of more technical posts this month.
  • Ex-president and current council member of the RIAI Eoin O’Cofaigh provided a detailed examination of smaller retail fit-out projects and the rationale for their exclusion under the new building regulations.
