Event description
Another Brick in the Wall : Implications of the Building Safety Bill for Student Residences : Presented by Hilary Crook

About this event

Overview

In response to public concerns over fire safety the government is proposing a radical overhaul to the Building Regulations regime to ensure buildings meet minimum standards and are safely managed.

The Building Safety Bill is draft legislation which will become the Building Safety Act when it receives royal assent. The Act will affect all aspects of a building’s life cycle from design through to occupation. Particular attention is given to multi-storey “higher risk buildings” – those with at least two residential units and at least 18 metres or 7 storeys high. Many halls of residence will fall into the “higher risk buildings” category and the Act will impose new statutory duties on those responsible for procuring and managing those buildings.

Many halls of residence have complex ownership and management structures. The Act will require each building to have an “accountable person”. Clear records will need to be kept and handed over when there is a change of control.

The Act will aim to empower occupiers and this will present its own challenges in student accommodation.
