A new report from a leading Canadian research group is challenging the prevailing wisdom that a home can be built from a lot of stuff and the materials that go with it.
The Canadian Institute for Risk Analysis (CIRA) released a report on Monday saying that home building “is inherently risky and requires careful design and construction practices.”
The report states that it is not just the material that can make a home safe.
“It’s also the people, places and situations that could potentially cause a catastrophe.”
Home builders are also “in a unique position to design and build buildings with a wide range of structural, electrical, mechanical, and electrical engineering elements,” the report said.
It says that in addition to the material used for building, the building also has to be safe, safe for the people who live there, and safe for everyone who lives and works in the area.
The report said that the construction of homes, and other buildings, should be considered a complex task.
Building “is a complex and multidimensional project that is inherently risky,” the CIRA report states.
“The design of a home requires the skill, planning and engineering knowledge of professionals from the construction industry.”
The report noted that there is a difference between the construction workers who are involved in the design of the home, and the professional architects and engineers who are responsible for the design and execution of the building.
“The home construction profession is also a highly specialized and skilled field in terms of building materials,” the statement reads.
“This specialization makes it difficult to build the safe, stable and cost-effective structures that will be necessary to meet the needs of today’s society.
It goes on to say that homeowners should be familiar with building codes, insurance and safety procedures, as well as the potential for structural failure.””
In particular, the risks associated with building home and personal residences are greater than those associated with other types of construction and maintenance,” the organization states.
It goes on to say that homeowners should be familiar with building codes, insurance and safety procedures, as well as the potential for structural failure.
“This includes the potential that a building can fail,” the document states.
The report also notes that “the risk of an earthquake in Canada is one of the highest in the world, with a risk to life per 10,000 square feet that is more than twice that of the U.S.”
The CISA report says that home builders have the responsibility to consider building as a multi-modal undertaking, where different components are required and the needs and risks associated to the work they do vary by type of building and project.
“Builders are required to consider the safety and security of the occupants and the surrounding environment, and should be trained to manage risks and make decisions that maximize the safety of occupants and their surroundings,” the publication says.
The National Council of Canadian Governments (NCCG) has been working with CIRA to promote building safety for years.
In February 2017, the group released its first guidelines for building safety, which include the need for people to understand the risks of their own building and the risks and benefits of using a different building material.
