The quality of reconstructed houses and other buildings in Sisak-Moslavina County came into focus in the aftermath of the 29 December 6.2 magnitude earthquake which significantly damaged numerous buildings that were rebuilt after the 1991-1995 Homeland War. The extensive damage caused by the disaster raised points of the quality of construction and supervision of works and also of the political and legal responsibility of authorities that organised reconstruction.

Considering the justified public interest and series of queries from the media seeking information on hired architects and building control inspectors, contractors and construction auditors and a statistical presentation of information related to budget funds spent, the central state office for reconstruction and housing has released information that does not hamper the current inspections by the relevant bodies, reads a statement on the office’s website

There are 83 architects and building control officers listed and 202 contractors. There are also four branch supervisors and one auditor listed.

Contractors included small and large companies from throughout Croatia.

The information was uploaded after Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said earlier on Thursday that there was no reason whatsoever why the public should not be informed of who had taken part in housing reconstruction after the 1991-95 war.
