The 2017 Grenfell Tower fire has shaken up the construction industry.  The matter affects designers, specifiers, suppliers, contractors as well as clients, inspectors, regulatory bodies and facility managers. Understanding regulations and ensuring that they are fully and correctly applied is a must.

An inquiry into the tragic fire and an independent review of building regulations and fire safety are underway.  This is an opportunity to take stock of the current landscape, bring our understanding of the technical demand of fire safety up to date in the new context and hear from management in the residential sector about their response.

We will hear from Nick Jenkins of Booth Muirie, cladding specialists, who are advising the Government following the Grenfell fire, and Stuart Power of Salus Approved Inspectors who will bring us up to date and reflect on the current concerns, and Emma Richman, Director of Assets at Great Places Housing Group who will talk about their practical response.
