KCA speaks out over design and build process on defective Hackney block


Well said Paul. "Value Erosion" is an apt interpretation of "Value Engineering", on much the same level as "Project Management" by people quite innocent of the reasons for iterative and all-embracing evolutions of a design, and its embedded aethetic and technical multi-dimensional web of macro and micro decisions. Might the RIBA one day fight back in promoting the central value of its Members' core skills and responsibilities? I fear not, until the Grenfell Tower Inquiry fully displays the blindingly obvious.
