Heritage Buildings and the Challenges of Compliance with Current Regulations

Published On Tuesday 5 April 2022

Using an existing heritage building but changing its use to something that it was not originally intended for can cause problems for owners and developers alike. In this feature in Conservation and Heritage, Richard Williams from Assent talks about the two main areas that can cause issue: fire risk and accessibility.

The key with both of these areas is early consultation with building control experts who can support any designer or developer by making recommendations to enable designs to remain complaint with the current Building Regulations.

This article gives insight and guidance to the key challenges in each of these areas as well as ways to help deal with the on-site issues that each of them may represent.
