Housing Association launches legal case over ‘poorly designed’ student housing

Comment

The 'defects in the external facade' are not specified, and neither are the other problems that have been discovered, or for that matter the architect's contractual relationships with client and builder - but does the timescale - 'more than ten years ago' - and (inter alia) the Edinburgh schools scandal - strengthen the notion that the 'race to the bottom' has been going on for some time? As the housing association says, money spent on repairs is money that could have helped finance affordable housing.
