Experts from leading City law firm Bevan Brittan discuss the new obligations and liabilities for built-environment professionals under the Building Safety Act secondary legislation.

The Building Safety Act has established a new and enhanced regulatory regime for the structural and fire safety of buildings in England and Wales. In particular, it has fundamentally changed the way higher-risk buildings (those above 18 meters or 7 storeys) are designed and regulated. Many of these changes came into force on 1 October 2023. It is essential that all affected built environment professionals fully understand the new statutory and contractual obligations and competency requirements to ensure their compliance with the enhanced safety framework.


Construction and health and safety lawyers  from Bevan Brittan, a UK Top-100 law firm providing commercial, corporate, property, finance, regulatory, employment and litigation legal advice to construction businesses, discuss what this means for businesses.
