Event description
Join us for a live panel discussion on the proposed changes to Part L Building Regulations.

About this Event

The Future Economy Network is happy to collaborate with network members Darren Evans on this event as part of their Thursday Thoughts series. We will be holding an evening panel discussion on the changes proposed to Part L of the Building Regulations and their potential impacts.

Part L of the Building Regulations contains requirements relating to the conservation of fuel and power. Part L aims to limit heat losses and excessive solar gains, ensure that energy-efficient fixed building services are installed, and that the building owner is provided with the information required to maintain the building and its services. It is anticipated Part L will be amended in 2020. The most significant potential change is a switch from CO2 to primary energy as the metric to assess building performance.

The session will cover four topics chaired by Darren Evans:

1. Proposed changes to Part L; wasted opportunity or waste of time?

2. The Performance Gap

3. What is the best way to build in this modern age?

4. What aspects of the construction industry are important to you?

We will welcome Elmhurst, WSP, Rollalong, BRE Group, Chartered Association of Building Engineers and network members Darren Evans, BuroHappold, Stride Treglown, University of the West of England & Kensa to discuss the topics.

More speakers and information to be announced.

The first session covered will be streamed live for those who are unable to attend the event. Online participants will be able to submit questions live to the first topic only. Details will be given prior to the event.

The remaining three sessions will only be available to ticket holders of the event. We welcome delegates to ask questions or comment during the panel discussion.
