MDA once again calls for registration and licensing of demolition contractors

The Malta Developers Association refers to news reports in the media exposing contractors demolishing buildings in a way that ignores the normal standards expected in a civilised country.

It is obvious that there are a number of demolition contractors that are not following the approved construction method statements that bind the owner of any such works on the methods to be used when demolishing an existing structure. Moreover, it is also obvious that no safety precautions are being taken in order to protect pedestrians, passing traffic and the workmen on site.

MDA’s position regarding this issue is clear and unequivocal. It believes that demolition works should only be carried out by regulated, licensed contractors, who would be fined and even have their license suspended whenever they disregard the conditions of the permit that allows the demolition of buildings. If such contractors are MDA members, they would be named and shamed, and their membership would be terminated.

Once again, MDA appeals to the authorities to introduce a register of licensed demolition contractors so that harsh measures can be taken against such rogue contractors.
