72 hours. That is all there is between InSite and the date the Building Safety Regulator becomes the building control authority for higher-risk buildings.
It couldn't be happening at a more appropriate time.
"I intend to take attendees on an end-to-end run through the new building control regime for higher risk buildings. I think it will be useful to have this opportunity to talk through the precise detail of the secondary legislation."
"[My presentation] will partly bring delegates up-to-speed with the latest developments and hopefully demystify the code and the work of the Ombudsman. But it’s also a chance for me to listen and ensure that the requirements of the code reflect the realities of being a developer in this challenging environment."
"I am looking to provide a broad overview the technical and policy drivers behind the Future Home Standard and put into context the importance of these changes and how they've come about, alongside a high-level overview for the changes including what they aim to achieve."
"A crash bang wallop through the new Parts F, L and O of the building regulations – where we are now, where we are heading – with a healthy dose of realism, to let people know that this is not only all achievable, but that it is not rocket science. We know how to achieve our goals, we just need commitment to get on with it!"
"Sustainability and energy efficiency is a hot topic. HSB has been insuring the performance of building retro-fit projects since 2014. There is increasing interest for performance guarantees not just for upgraded, existing building stock but also new builds. That will be at the centre of our discussion."
"My work is driven by competency. Competency isn’t a tick box exercise and how you demonstrate it is complex. I’m looking holistically at what brings competency together, such as knowledge, experience, skills, attitude, qualifications and how we can bring that together in a tangible format."
"Throughout my time in building control, I discovered that I had a niche with regulations and re-presenting complex issues in a fresh and dynamic way to help others as much as possible. [Our presentation] I’ll be focusing on where we have come from in terms of competency and what the legislative background is."
"The presentation will take a look at the engineering services which HSB provide in the UK and Ireland. Taking a look back to explain how both insurance and inspection have been intrinsically linked since the mid 1800’s. The presentation will show how this relationship looks today, especially showing how HSB’s engineering services have evolved for modern engineering technology."
