Tag : independent review of building regulations and fire safety
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.
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 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
A review of current rules governing the planning, design, construction, maintenance, refurbishment and change management for both new and existing buildings is included among the final terms of reference for a new independent review announced following the Grenfell Tower fire.
