Where is it?

The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, England SW1Y 5AG

The details:

With the next round of regulatory changes come into force on 1 October, this event will set out the breadth of the regulatory changes, the new requirements of building regulations and the details of the new regime for the Golden Thread and Key Building Information that will apply to all those who are accountable persons for a Higher Risk Building.

Under the new regime everyone undertaking building work will have a duty to be able to demonstrate compliance – everyone will need to be able to show their workings and provide the hard evidence to support a claim of compliance when challenged.

This event will help clients and the supply chain to understand the new requirements in much more detail.

CIBSE is ideally placed to deliver authoritative guidance convene debate on Building Safety and high-risk buildings. We also work closely with all the key stakeholders active and affected by the Building Safety Act and its impact on how we build.

The Building Safety Act introduces the most radical changes to the system of building controls and approvals since the second world war. It fundamentally rewrites the legal controls over all building work and introduces new duties and responsibilities on all professionals in the supply chain.

The Building Services Community is the only group that is a constant from a Building’s conception, through its design, construction, commissioning and handover and on into the management maintenance and even refurbishment. CIBSE members are central to communication over standards and the exchange of key building information throughout the lifespan of a building.
