In this webinar, our specialist building and fire safety risk experts Louise Mansfield, Louise Robling and Steven Eccles were joined by Andy Jackson, Fire Safety Manager at Coventry University, to 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, the implications these changes have for Universities, and how this works on the ground. Our panel looked at the core actions you need to consider and start working on now for both residential and non-residential buildings.
The session covered 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 On Demand 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.
