Part L 2021 edition: The Role of the Building Envelope in Compliance for Non-Domestic Buildings
The CPD will provide the attendee with guidance on the key changes between Part L 2013 and Part L
2021 edition as an interim step before the Future Buildings Standard in 2025. This is an update from
our previous RIBA approved Part L CPD which was based on 2013 edition but covers the
considerations around methodology and compliance covering National Calculation methodology,
SBEM and the Notional building. It covers the main themes for new build but also features considerations for refurbishment.

The focus of the CPD is not to show different scenarios with
modelling but a highlight of the main changes, what they mean and the implications to consider as a
result. This looks at the changes from a holistic/general approach to compliance from a building envelope perspective.

Please note that this is available as face to face or a live webinar.

Specifying Metal Clad Envelope Systems in Accordance with ADB2 of the Building Regulations and the Value of Large-Scale System Testing.
This CPD provides an overview of the building regulations in relation to fire for non domestic buildings in England (ADB2). These were published in August 2019 and focus on elements that mostly influence the specification of the building envelope products (i.e., roofs and walls). The CPD also looks at the additional need for insurance approval and the use of large scale testing to gain this approval, as well as how insurance approved products perform in real life fires.

By the end of the presentation, you should have a greater understanding of:
The recommendations in ADB2 for specification of roof and wall products in England.
The test methods used to rate roof and wall products within ADB2.
The need for insurance approval on non domestic buildings in the UK and the tests required to gain this approval.
How to identify the correct fire regulation for your UK project.
How to specify a roof or wall system in relation to its fire performance to regulation recommendations for non domestic buildings in England.
