The report by our Professor John Cole CBE RIBA into the construction failures of seventeen schools in Scotland has been lauded as a comprehensive and hard-hitting review that will have significant impact on the how the Scottish Government procures design and construction.
According to BBC News, Kevin Stewart, Minister for Housing and Local Government, said: “The safety of people in public buildings is an absolute priority and I am very concerned by some of the findings highlighted in this report.””
Professor Cole is now involved in workshops with many sectors of Scottish Government as they explain and plan how they will implement the findings of Professor Cole’s report.
