Did you know that building owners in Wellington, Marlborough and Hurunui have just one year to secure all street-facing unreinforced masonry (URM) parapets and facades? Given the current squeeze on resources, a 12 month turn-around is a big ask – the wait time at some scaffolding companies is up to 9 months right now …
