Episode 52: Jerry Tate - Making the golden thread a legal part of an architect’s role
Jerry Tate, Partner at Tate + Co, chats with Mail Manager's Joseph Soper all about the golden thread, covering why it needs to be a legal part of an architects role, the benefits and implications, questioning when it will become a legal requirement, has there been enough change since Grenfell, the new perceived risks for architect resulting in rising insurance costs, and the need for newly qualified roles in dealing with the golden thread to reduce the risk.
