Even those buildings made of the best of materials are being sloppily designed and constructed today. But many flaws that are already part of the construction are made into bigger and more costly problems by maintenance personal and other engineers because they do not take time to study the buildings for which they are responsible.
Which of the following if could be carried out is most likely to alleviate the difficulties stated in the passage?
A. Buildings are made only of more costly materials that have passed all safety requirements
This does not assure that the building is well made nor is well maintained.(only that is more costly ...)
B. Maintenance personnel inform the tenants in their buildings about any repairs that are needed.
This does not assure that the original plans are respected or that the building is well maintained.
C. Engineers who were not responsible for the original construction of the building supervise any structural improvements in the building
This makes the problem worse, as engineers who do not know the original plan are in charge of taking care of the building itself.
D. The design engineer oversees the maintenance of his or her creation after construction is ended and the building is occupied
CORRECT.If this policy is carried out, the second problem (they do not take time to study the buildings for which they are responsible)is no more an issue.
E. The plans of a design engineer are made available for scrutiny of the tenants of the building the engineer designed
This does not assure anything, because the design engineer can still not respect the original plans.
It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge that begins with experience.
