The standards most frequently encountered in construction work in the United Kingdom will now be described under two headings, ‘generalpurpose standards’ and ‘nuclear standards’. Both general-purpose and nuclear standards specify systems which will maintain and assure quality; the difference is that whereas the first category is oriented to the requirements of the market place, the second is aimed more at satisfying the statutory requirements imposed by regulatory authorities particularly in respect of safety.
These factors, together with the NHBC’s ultimate sanction of expulsion, provide a potent incentive to builders to meet NHBC standards and to accept their surveillance. Contracts and the courts There is a risk that the brevity of the foregoing summary of typical contractual arrangements used in the construction industry may have given a misleading impression of simplicity and clarity. Such unfortunately is seldom the case in practice. There are very many different forms of contract and these are frequently varied by purchasers to suit particular circumstances.
In practice, however, the position is ill-defined and it is not easy for a purchaser to obtain redress under contract from an architect in respect of a defective building. Given the nature of building work, this is not as unreasonable as it might at first sight appear. After all, a wise man does not accept responsibility for activities which are outwith his control. For an architect to accept full responsibility for quality it would be necessary for him or his representative to be present to observe, measure and test every single element of the building.
