Education and Training Manager for Simpson Strong Tie Billy Viars said that during a visit of ongoing construction works in Dominica the company has cited improper building practices still ongoing.
Simpson Strong Tie and JARS Sales and Services Ltd have collaborated to host a training symposium aimed at demonstrating the proper installation of timber ties, particularly as it relates to the building of roofs.
The symposium is held at the Goodwill Parish Hall.
Meantime, Viars said that despite some areas of improper practices he was impressed the skilled workmanship of the people.
Viars said that small investments into properties can allow them to withstand the effects of natural disasters.
