Future thinking in building regulations

04 December 2012

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Harry Hems Centre, Longbrook Street, Exeter EX4 6AP


Building Regulations by definition are reviewed and revised frequently, which can cause a headache for the designer.

Written and presented by experienced Building Control practitioners, this seminar provides critical information on building regulations in relation to energy efficiency, sustainability and climate change.

Focusing on current requirements, future standards, design issues and practical implications for architects, the seminar covers:

  • Part L - conservation of energy, renovation of thermal elements, replacement windows
  • Part F - ventilation
  • Part J - heating
  • Part P - electrics
  • Part G - water safety and usage.

Compliance processes, future changes to building regulations and revisions in the pipeline will also be addressed.

Speaker: Anna Thompson, LABC, is a Chartered Building Control Surveyor and Fellow of the Association of Building Engineers with over 23 years' experience in Local Authority Building Control, including as Building Control Manager at East Devon District Council.
