Build UK’s response to the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety: Final Report

After the release of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety: Final Report, Build UK released the below statement:

Suzannah Nichol MBE, Chief Executive of Build UK said:

“It is not surprising to see that Dame Judith Hackitt is proposing radical change in how high rise residential buildings are designed, constructed and maintained. Containing a substantial number of recommendations, including new legislation, it is now up to the industry to adopt a much more rigorous approach to ensuring that designs, materials, systems and buildings are fit for purpose and that everyone is clear who is accountable at each stage of the process.”
