Bruce also tells us his views of where the SDA sector is and should be heading and talks about his advocacy of various aspects, particularly around Robust design and Fire safety.

The discussion centres around the ideal requirements for Robust design and the failings of the current design standards and new pricing review income levels to ensure suitable development of Robust properties.
