Time is Running Out To Register Your High Rise Building – Act now!

August 16, 2023

Following the Grenfell Tower fire, the government launched enquiries to investigate the causes and identify what action could be taken to ensure that a predictable event such as a modest kitchen fire could never again have such devastating consequences.

The resulting Building Safety Act 2022 was introduced to overhaul and strengthen the regulatory regime for the construction and use of buildings for high-rise residential buildings.

Part of the new building control regime is the introduction of a register of higher risk residential buildings, that is buildings which contain at least 2 residential units and are at least 18 metres in height or at least 7 storeys.
