The construction industry and the skilled trades are groaning under the increasing bureaucracy, because more and more laws and regulations are tying up personnel resources and causing enormous costs. Nevertheless, reducing bureaucracy is a hot topic. At this year’s new year’s talk at the otto heil academy, this was the subject of a heated discussion with walter nussel, the bavarian state government’s commissioner for bureaucracy reduction.
In numerous speeches from the audience, it became clear that we are overburdening ourselves with regulations. The managing director of the construction company otto heil, peter heil, criticized in particular the handling of excavated soil, which had to be sampled at great expense and classified as waste and disposed of in landfills even in the case of a naturally elevated pollutant content. As a result, the costs for basements, underground garages and the like had exploded.
Walter nussel also saw a great urgency here. Together with experts, he has drawn up a backfilling guide to make it easier to deal with excavated soil.
