The inherent flaw in the LBP system is that experience or more importantly the lack of is not critical to becoming licensed.
Take plumbers for instance, a craftsman plumber does a apprenticeship and then is required to advance their skills by weight of time to a recognised level before they can hang their shingle out as a competent qualified craftsman.
I did a whole bunch of focus group touchy feely stuff regarding the LBP system design and nothing literally nothing about the present structure has improved the standard of the building skills required to produce quality durable value for money and healthy homes for the population.
Passed my professional builders eye over the latest million dollar dog boxes being wacked out by mainly unskilled immigrant contractors in Hobsonville and take my advice what is being built and sold there is just plain overpriced junk.
Durability and quality seems to once again become the missing link in new build housing stock.
