Work from two CIOB student members has been singled out by their course leader from the CIOB accredited University Centre at Blackburn College.

Brandon Allison and Andrew Beardsworth, both building control officers completing their BSc in Building Surveying part time, have produced dissertations that raise ‘interesting questions’, according to Bill Rowland, programme leader HNC and BSc Construction.

The research covers consistency with planning and rural barns, and inconsistencies in the application of the approved documents when dealing with fire safety in loft conversions. It is available to view online from the end of May.
