RIBA East: Building Regulations update 2022

Changes to the Building Regulations 2022 come into force in June 2022. Find out how these changes will affect you and your business with this webinar hosted by the Royal Institute of British Architect’s East region.

This is a recording of an online event held on 15 June 2022.

The UK has set in law a target to bring all its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. As part of the journey to 2050, the government committed to introducing the Future Homes Standard in 2025 and an uplift to energy efficiency standards and requirements in 2022 as a steppingstone to the Future Homes Standard. An average home is likely to have 75% to 80% less carbon emissions than one built to current energy efficiency requirements. Improvements to the standards for energy efficiency in non-domestic buildings, changes to the ventilation standards for all types of buildings and a new requirement to limit the solar overheating in residential buildings are also set to change.

Stephen Barnshaw from jhai Ltd, presents details of the changes and the impact on your projects, both current and future and responds to questions from the audience.
