C27 Modern Methods of Construction

The recently published Hackitt Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety makes recommendations for the prescribed use of building information modelling (BIM) systems, to assist in ensuring building owners and occupiers are fully aware of the nature and style of construction used and, associated safety systems installed. The benefits of such an approach will be explored alongside the steps that can be taken to ensure that during maintenance, repair or refurbishment works, appropriate decision making makes sure standards of safety and resilience are not compromised.

This event aims to provide a forecast for the future alongside clarifying the risks associated with the use of combustible materials and modern building methods and the steps that can be taken to mitigate and ensure resilience.
