BESA will hold its second annual conference in London on November 1 with payment reform, Brexit and the technical implications of the soon to be published findings of a major review of building regulations expected to dominate proceedings.
Commitments to push for the formation of a new building safety regulator by Secretary of State for Housing, Local Government and Communities Robert Jenrick have been welcomed by BESA as an example of a cross-party political consensus for drastic post-Grenfell reforms.
BESA has urged government to expand proposed reforms of fire and building safety to a wider range of high risks buildings than is presently being considered.
Initial findings from the Independent review of building regulations and fire safety launched following the Grenfell Tower fire call for a “universal shift in culture” to rebuild resident trust in how high-rise properties are built and operate.
The final report of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety that was launched following the Grenfell Tower fire is on course to be published during May this year, according to the Construction Products Association (CPA).
The Construction Products Association (CPA) has extended a Call for Evidence of how information on products is made available to the supply chain until April 23 in order to get a wider number of industry voices on potential risks.
A lack of transparency concerning the performance of construction products remains a pressing concern for the building services sector as the government commits to introduce a series of changes to safety regulations.
The government has appointed Dame Judith Hackitt as an independent advisor in its work to introduce a new building safety regulator.
Dame Judith Hackitt has said there is widespread consensus within the construction industry of the need for radical reform of the current broken regulatory system for high-rise and complex buildings.
The deadline for responses to a consultation on the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety has closed as planned last week with its final recommendations expected to be published on schedule next spring
