The Chartered Institute of Building and the Federation of Master Builders are running a seminar on 27 February on the Future Homes Standard and Future Buildings Standard government consultation. 

The event is aimed at housebuilders who will be affected by changes in the consultation.

Speakers will include Joe Dowley, head of energy performance of buildings policy and strategy at the Department of Levelling Up, Housing & Communities; Orla Wheeler, senior policy adviser at Future Homes and Buildings Standards; and Jeremy Gray, head of policy and public affairs at the Federation of Master Builders.

The Department of Levelling Up, Housing & Communities launched a consultation in December on the changes to Part 6, Part L (conservation of fuel and power) and Part F (ventilation) of the Building Regulations for dwellings and non-domestic buildings. DLUHC is also seeking evidence on previous changes to Part O (overheating).

The consultation is open until 6 March. CIOB is compiling a response.

CIOB acting head of policy and public affairs (UK), David Barnes, said: “The government is currently consulting on the detail in the Future Homes Standard. The Standard aims to ensure new homes built from 2025 will produce 75-80% less carbon emissions than homes built under the current building regulations.

“We are keen to make CIOB and FMB members aware of the proposals and encourage those who will be affected to respond either individually, or to contribute towards CIOB’s formal response.”
