ABSTRACT

This study is descriptive survey research that was designed to look into the roles of professional builders in the implementation and enforcement of the national building code (2006) in the Enugu metropolis. It was guided by four research questions. The respondent consisted of 19 professional builders in the Enugu metropolis. Convenient sampling was used and the sample size was obtained using Yaro Yamane’s formula.

A questionnaire and interview guide were used for data collection. Face, construct, and content validity was ensured. The reliability of the instrument revealed a medium positive correction of 0.5. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequency and percentages. The result shows that the roles of the professional builders are in the implementation and enforcement of the National building code are stated in the code but there is a need to create more awareness of the code and its content so as to make them at home with all there roles. Lack of surveillance by the enforcement agencies and use of non-profession builders are factors affecting the performance of the professional builder in the implementation of the National building code. There is no statutory body charged with the implementation of the National building code in the Enugu metropolis. The state government or CORBON need to appoint one to oversee the implementation of the National building code in the state; more effort need to be put in place in order to enhance the role of the professional builder in the implementation of the National building code.
