Energy-efficiency will be among the topics discussed by leading industry figures at the H&V News Building Regulations question time on 27 March.
Ideally timed to provide attendees with an in-depth update before the launch of the latest changes to the Building Regulations in April, the focus on making best use of energy-saving technology adds another highly important element to the proceedings.
The subject of energy-efficiency retrofit and the surrounding issues will be covered by the Federation of Master Builders’ John Pratt, speaking within the domestic buildings session of the event.
Hilson Moran’s Dan Jestico, representing the Green Building Council, will look at the need to reduce emissions within the commercial buildings session and also look ahead to 2019 to outline what will be required in the years ahead.
The requirements of Part L for domestic buildings and a wider discussion on zero carbon policy will be presented by Zero Carbon Hubs’s Tassos Kougionis.
Additional scope will be provided by Sustainable Homes managing director Andrew Eagles, who will cover the Housing Standards Review within his presentation.
The event will open with a keynote speech from the Department of Community and Local Government.
The two panel sessions, focusing on commercial and domestic buildings, will both include 10-minute presentations from panelists on their specialist topic, followed by further discussion with delegates.
It will be held at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors on 27 March from 9am to 2pm, including a networking lunch, and is free to attend.
