NBS: The Building Regs Explained - Overview

The Building Regulations Approved Documents are going through a radical overhaul and many changes will come into force in October 2010. At that time, new domestic and non-domestic buildings will have to improve significantly their energy efficiency standards, their air-tightness, their controlled ventilation rates and their carbon footprint. From April 2010, domestic properties must reduce their average water use by 10 per cent.

This half-day seminar will offer the opportunity to understand the differences between the new regulations and current practices and provide a rare opportunity to question the experts. It will explain what you need to do now – and what you don't need to do – in order to comply.

This seminar will focus on the thinking behind the changes; the detail; the methods and the obligations.

Speakers Include:
Geoff Wilkinson, Vice Chairman of the Building Control & Standards Faculty of the CIOB, Building Regs Columnist, Architects' Journal
David Ross, Regional Director, AECOM
John Griggs, Principal Technical Officer, Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering
Ant Wilson, Director, AECOM
