Dame Judith Hackitt: Fire safety: Change now to survive

Current and proposed regulatory changes will form a significant shift in the consideration of new build and alterations to existing buildings – WOBO members and fellow professionals will be key in supporting both the changes and reinforcing the “cultural shift” required within the industry.   


Dame Judith Hackitt recently gave an update on fire safety at the Construction Leaders’ Summit run by NBS which can be viewed at https://lnkd.in/duGCnQ9

Strong messages that construction firms “will not survive” new building regulations due to come into force in 2023 “unless senior staff start making changes now” and that ‘The Building Safety Bill and the Fire Safety Order will bring a radical change in approach to building regulations and will drive that delivery of better, safer buildings.”
