People spend their lifetime saving to buy a home or apartment, however, while choosing the apartment building and after moving into it, hardly think about safety and maintenance of the building.
Prakash Deshmukh, the immediate past President of Indian Institute of Architects (IIA), and Director of Associated Space Designers Pvt Ltd explained the audience about “Maintenance and Safety of the Built Environment”.
“When you buy a car, the manufacturer provides you with a manual. However, when you buy a home worth lakhs of rupees, there is no such thing given by the developer. Therefore, maintenance manual should be made mandatory with every project,” he says.
