Event description
A detailed analysis of Building Regulations changes covering the Future Homes initiative

About this Event

As part of its role of ensuring Building Regulations remain effective and up to date, the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has issued the Future Homes Standard which will “require new build homes to future proofed with low carbon heating and world leading levels of energy efficiency”. At the same time the government and industry is developing its response to the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy with the implementation of the governments proposed changes to the Building Control System and in particular the way Fire Safety standards are applied.

This seminar will look at providing architects, contractors and consultants with an understanding of how the Building Regulations are changing in 2020 and the potential longer term changes to ensure the regulatory system is fit for purpose. It will provide a detailed analysis of the effects of the revised energy efficiency requirements in the regulations, including Part L, all in the context of the move towards a nearly zero energy standard as prescribed in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.

· New Approved Documents for Parts B, F and L

· The effect of BREXIT on the European Performance of Buildings Directive requirements on energy efficiency

· Changes to the building control system

· A detailed analysis of the changes to the energy efficiency requirements of the regulations including Part L

The first half of the presentation will be an exploration of the structural changes to the Building Control System including potential new statutory roles for clients, designers and contractors, gateway points, ongoing requirements relating to the “golden thread” and recent and potential changes to Fire Safety standards within the regulations. The second half will cover the new future homes carbon and fabric standards for new dwellings and case studies looking at design flexibilities

This session will aim to offer:

· A review of the proposed 2020 revisions to the Building Regulations

· An insight into the proposed changes to the statutory sustainability requirements, covering EPC’s, domestic and non-domestic CO2 emission calculations

· A review of the changes made to the fire safety requirements after the Grenfell Tower tragedy
