The Draft Building Safety Bill (“the Draft Bill”) is the government’s long awaited response to the Grenfell fire and Dame Judith Hackitt’s 2018 review of the building industry, “Building a Safer Future”. The Draft Bill sets out a proposed new regulatory regime for those involved in the design, construction and approval of high rise residential buildings in England. The changes proposed by the government undoubtedly represent the biggest change to the building safety regulatory regime in decades and present new and potentially onerous obligations for those involved in the construction industry.
In this session Joanna Lewis, Nathan Modell and Michael Salau explore the background to the Draft Bill as well as a discussion of the proposed changes and potential new pitfalls for professionals from a practical perspective.
