Some Ideas Beyond Buildings Auidits to Make Buildings Safe in Kenya
February 22, 2015

A study by  Questworks CEO Dr. Raul Figueroa  (PhD thesis at Carnegie Mellon School of Engineering and Public Policy) got  discussed in parliament. This was after a feature done, ably by John Gachiri of Business Daily.  The center point of the study  is is really about safety of buildings generally and specifically in the event of an earthquake. Three years ago, as part of  our larger commitment to helping built quality infrastructure, Questworks  offered free building structural audits to developers. We also in 2015 committed more equipment that can allow for more will continue to offer free advisory services on building safety and integrity as part of our ongoing commitment to save lives. Ultimately, it will take more than  single effort and therefore it is exciting that parliament and possibly senate will be discussing this scientific study with a view of looking at aspects of legislation that can positively impact quality of construction in Africa and most importantly save lives and property in Kenya and Africa.
