New Build Fire Regulations
The construction phase of a new build project faces many challenges and legislations. In England and Wales, planners and builders must pay particular attention to Approved Document B, which covers fire safety in and around buildings. The equivalent document for Scotland is the Buildings Regulations.
Laws and regulations around construction and building maintenance have seen significant changes as a result of the Grenfell tragedy and the ensuing enquiries. The Building Safety Act 2022 was granted Royal Assent in April 2022 and is planned to come into effect in October 2023.
