With the ever-changing guidance and regulation what is the best practice to designing out fire risk in high-rise residential buildings and how can you prepare?
The recent history of building fires has embedded the importance of reducing fire risk at the design stage. The Government continues to make fire safety within construction a key priority and has introduced new fire safety regulation in the Fire Safety Bill and Building Safety Bill, therefore, the industry needs to adapt and change working methods to design out fire risk at an early stage, and work to build a culture with safety at its heart.
The new legislation includes the new Construction Products Regulator whose aim it will be to regulate the industry and uphold the standards of products used in construction. The appointment of the New Building Safety Regulator will also oversee compliance with regulations. Both will impact many stakeholders in any residential construction project as the regulators are key to enforcing a safer system within the industry.
Resibuild Brings Together Key Industry Voices to Discuss Fire Safety
