Water from broken pipe ruins survey equipment

The National,Wednesday June 29th, 2016

THE National Capital District Commission building board has been accused of not inspecting buildings properly before allowing tenants in, according to the National Mapping Bureau director Michael Gideon.
Gideon said water from a broken pipe at their office ruined items and machines last weekend.
“This will affect the survey and engineering work in the country because permanent survey marks is important for surveying and engineering work,” Gideon said.
He said it would take two to three years for them to coordinate the permanent survey marks again.
Gideon said this was not the first time they had experienced the problem since they moved into the building in 2014.
No comment could be obtained from the NCDC.
Dynamic Asset Consultant (DAC) is managing the building.
Property manager of DAC Michaela Otto said they would fix everything as soon as possible.
“We will evaluate the situation and get to the landlords to fix the situation quickly so that National Mapping Bureau can get back to work immediately,” Otto said.
