Higher-risk buildings and the Building Safety Act
10th January 2024

With the Building Safety Act (BSA) 2022 now in place, the way in which higher-risk buildings (HRBs) are regulated has altered. This has been one of the most comprehensive changes in legislation for forty years.

From new gateway points, detailing a number of different steps and checkpoints to allow HRB projects to progress, to the reporting and information logging of critical information known as the golden thread, the industry has to change its ways.

In this article, our Building Safety Act specialist advisor, Colin Blatchford-Brown elaborates on what constitutes a HRB and how the sector can navigate the BSA.

You can read a much more detailed version in the latest issue of Public Sector Build Journal, on page 14. If you’d like to discuss how Assent can support your building projects in 2024, please get in touch.
