The Governments flagship Building Safety Bill received royal assent on 28th April and is set to become law.

The Governments flagship Building Safety Bill received royal assent on 28th April and is set to become law. Aimed at providing a generational change in the construction industry to improve health and safety of residential buildings, it will also have a profound effect on how Building Control Bodies operate with the introduction of the Building Safety Regulator as part of the Health & Safety Executive to enforce regulatory regime for residential buildings over 18m in height, and ensuring competence for both building control bodies and individuals working in the building control profession.

Exciting and challenging times for all in our profession and one that is welcomed by Meridian and staff.
