Join us for the third session in our higher education spring #WednesdayWebinar series. In this webinar our specialist panel will discuss the major changes from 2022 and those due to come into force in 2023 in relation to the management of building structural and fire safety introduced following the Grenfell Tower Fire by the Building Safety Act 2022 and the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022, and the implications these changes have for Universities. We will be looking at the core actions you need to consider and start working on now for both residential and non-residential buildings.
The session will cover the implications of the new obligations for:
- New building work – discussing what changes you may need to make during the construction process
- Existing buildings – including the new requirement to appoint an Accountable Person to manage building safety if the building is occupied
- Non-compliance – what happens if there is a problem? and
- Cost – who pays for remedial works?
This session will be relevant for all higher education providers and specifically anyone in higher education involved in estates and facilities management, construction projects, health & safety, legal, compliance or risk management.
This interactive session aims to inform attendees of the requirements and spark discussion amongst attendees, sharing knowledge and ideas, around the challenges they are facing and how these are being/could be managed. If you have any questions, please let us know and we can put these to the panel.
Our free webinar will be hosted by our building and fire safety risk experts Louise Mansfield, Louise Robling and Steven Eccles. We also hope to be joined by a guest speaker from a University whose role is to manage fire / building safety and who can share practical experience of how this works on the ground (further details to follow).
This is the third in our series of webinars that we’re hosting in March, which will cover a range of different topics across the higher education sector. Our higher education specialists will be hosting our Wednesday Webinars from 12-1pm on 1, 8, 15 and 22 March.
