Event Summary

This day will look at the minimum standards set by Parts F, G, & L of the Building Regulations in relation to ventilation strategies and, water efficiency, sanitary provision, and energy conservation. The course will also examine in detail the guidance given in the Approved Documents and the calculations required to demonstrate compliance. It will also consider secondary guidance such as the ventilation compliance guides and possible alternatives given in British Standards.

This seminar will also feature the  Building Regulation Part Q, R and Space Standards. From October of 2015 a new minimum standard of security for domestic premises was introduced as Part Q of the Building Regulations. By learning about this standard, you will be introduced to the measures to protect against burglary by focusing on the construction of windows and doors.

Although now technically a Building Regulation there is an optional National Housing Standard relating to minimum space in dwellings. You will gain an understanding of minimum overall dwelling sizes, minimum bedroom sizes, provision for storage and minimum headrooms.

In a further widening of the scope of regulations beyond health and safety, Part R relates to the ability of premises to receive high speed internet connections and you will receive full guidance on this new regulation. 

This seminar can be taken as a stand-alone course or forms part of the Certificate in Building Control. To gain the certification you must complete both Weeks One and Two.
