The recent, horrible and tragic building collapses in South Asia have already resulted in the adoption of new building construction standards and practices . . . in a regulatory effort to ensure this type of disaster never again occurs. Only a month after more than 1,100 Bangladeshi garment workers lost their lives in the collapse of a badly-built and poorly-maintained building, the new building code has --thankfully- -gone into force . . . and its rigid practices are already being applied by highly-skilled and properly-trained construction teams.
