Builders – ‘Terrorised’by Excess Information
The man on a mission, Jerry Tyrrell, emphasis the fact that builders need easily accessible and understandable regulatory information, and they need it now.
Builders are ‘terrorised’ daily by excess information. They are too busy, confused or intimidated to fight back against the incessant ‘barrel bombs’ of unnecessary words from government, association and industry bureaucrats. But it is up to us to make things better. I know the Australian Building Codes Board is trying and on our side. They have started by making their NCCs free. They just need to get a move on and we need to apply much more pressure.
Otherwise the tyranny of confusing information will not stop. You all know the business case put by the providers of codes, rules and Standards doesn’t add up. It is slowing us down and affecting our bottom lines. So I think any continued inaction, delay and excuses by politicians and our industry leaders are pathetic and inexcusable. They know global companies spend up big on pictograms and flowcharts to explain complex things. Look at Apple, Dyson, IKEA, Google, Commbiz who make a lot of money from being clear and concise.
