Understanding the Building Safety Act
The Building Safety Act 2022, and other related changes, introduced a new legal framework for the industry, with additional requirements being set out for higher risk buildings (HRB) that are 18+ metres in height or have seven or more storeys and have at least two residential dwellings, with further implications to all buildings through changes to the secondary legislation and fire legislation.
The updated Building Regulations came into force on 1 October 2023 which impact all projects requiring Building Regulation Approval. The Regulation was required as part of enacting the secondary legislation associated with the Building Safety Act and updated the Building Regulations 2010. However, the change in regulations applied to ALL projects, not just residential or Higher Risk Buildings. The RIBA has a in depth read on the changes here.

Following the success of our last webinar on Your Journey to Safer Buildings, which attracted over 400 attendees, we’re happy to be partnering with Operance once again to explore this topic.
The Building Safety Case Report stands as an indispensable document in meeting the regulatory mandates of the Building Safety Act. Serving as a condensed synopsis of extensive evidence detailing identified risks, alongside mitigation strategies concerning the building, its elements, and its occupants, this report holds paramount importance. It serves as a testament to the responsible parties’ commitment to managing fire safety and structural integrity risks effectively, ensuring both regulatory compliance and resident safety.
