Webinar: Fire and the Building Safety Bill – a developer review




17th February, 2022


1:00 pm - 2:30 pm



2022-02-17 1:00 pm 2022-02-17 2:30 pm Europe/London Webinar: Fire and the Building Safety Bill – a developer review


Introduced in response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy and Dame Judith Hackitt's subsequent independent review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, the Building Safety Bill is said to be the most fundamental reform of regulation across the construction and residential property sectors in living memory.

Due to become law in April 2022, it will have a wide-ranging impact on the way developers and contractors build, operate and refurbish buildings, and on the rights of those who live and work in them.

Architects Ryder, engineers and fire safety consultants Hydrock and Ward Hadaway are coming together for a free webinar on Thursday 17th February at 1pm to look specifically at the changes to fire safety standards contained in the Bill, and the impact that this is likely to have for developers, whether commercial, residential, health and local authority estate, or social housing providers.

Using the Design / Build / Operate process as our roadmap, we will look from all angles at the changes this will bring, and implications on time, cost and quality for a project.  With experts from Ward Hadaway’s construction, housing management and regulatory teams contributing alongside specialist architects and fire safety consultants, it will provide a fully rounded review of this complex but all important topic.  Chair Alistair McDonald from Ward Hadaway’s Built Environment team will be putting the questions to our panellists, including some of your own questions submitted during registration or via Zoom’s Q&A feature during the event.

Register for free to attend on Thursday 17th February at 1pm via Zoom.
