Highlights:
Subsequent to the full implementation of Mandatory Building Inspection Scheme (MBIS) since June 2012, Building Department will issue statutory notices to the owners of 2000 buildings each year in respect of MBIS. The seminar helped property management personnel, inspectors, contractors and practitioners of testing laboratories to gain a more thorough understanding of MBIS and the various building diagnostic tests. Representatives of relevant Government Departments were invited to introduce such information in details. The audiences also had a brief idea on how to use various diagnostic equipment to obtain data about building condition as important references in the inspection process. The seminar had brought together over 300 stakeholders and practitioners of relevant trades for exchanging ideas and information.
