About this Event

Session summary

The new building safety regime introduced in England by the Building Safety Act 2022 represents a seismic change to the way that the Built Environment sector approaches the design, construction and management of residential buildings. Join us for an in-depth yet practical review of the provisions of the Building Safety Act 2022, including the new gateway regime regulating the design and construction of high-risk residential buildings, the golden thread of information and the new rights of action / routes of redress available to building owners / leaseholders, in order to understand the implications of the Building Safety Act and how this is likely to affect you and your business.

This is a must attend event for contractors, project managers, and design consultants to understand their obligations and liabilities for past and future projects caught by the Building Safety Act 2022.

Members gain 3 CIOB CPD points when you reflect ethical aspects of your learning from this activity.
