Despite building codes not being mandatory it is common practice, especially in the construction of major buildings.
This is the opinion of Government Minister Stuart Young who addressed the media at today’s Post Cabinet Media Briefing.
He says while it is the plan to look at a National Building Code, it has already been incorporated into construction in T&T.
Regarding the evacuation of persons out of Port of Spain in the event of a natural disaster, Mr Young says discussions have been ongoing with National Security members.
