This event has now finished.
We hope you can join our upcoming webinar taking place on Thursday 4 June where we will address the Building a Safer Future consultation, that is being referred to as the biggest change in building safety for a generation.
Over the last few months we have seen numerous developments, such as the announcement of the Building Safety Regulator in January 2020; the Fire Safety Bill that is currently making its way through parliament for approval; and most recently the government published its response to the Building a Safer Future consultation which began in June 2019. Along with its response, the Government also published an Economic Impact Assessment of the projected costs and benefits associated with these reforms, which is likely to be of increased significance due to the economic difficulties caused to the industry by COVID-19. A further £1billion in funding has also been announced to support the remediation of unsafe cladding materials on high-rise buildings.
Despite the current COVID-19 crisis, it is clear that the government is intent that building safety reforms should continue apace and further significant announcements are expected in the coming weeks.
In this webinar we will discuss these developments in more detail and answer any questions that you may have.
