The Building Safety Act: Implications for clients, designers and contractors

10 July, 12-1pm, online

Join Eddie Tuttle, CIOB director of policy, external affairs and research, and CIOB past president Paul Nash for this building regulations presentation followed by a Q&A.

Since the 2017 Grenfell Tower disaster, a complex new regime of building safety legislation has
been introduced.

The Building Safety Act 2022, which came into force from 1 April 2023, introduced the most radical change to the English regulatory landscape for the built environment in a generation.

The legislation is intended to improve the design, construction and management of higher-risk buildings. Needless to say, many of the changes have far-reaching consequences for construction clients.
