RIBA webinar: What the changes to the Approved Documents mean in practice

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has introduced a range of changes to the Building Regulations. These are aimed at helping Government achieve its net zero targets by 2050. The changes include a requirement for new homes to produce around 30% less CO2 than the current standards; and a 27% reduction of emissions from other new buildings, including offices and shops.

What are the changes to the new Approved Documents? Join us on Tuesday 14 June for a free RIBA webinar where I'll be speaking alongside Peter Rankin, Head of Energy & Environmental Standards at DLUHC to explore what the changes mean to you in practice. Book a place here.

The new ADs come into force on the 15th June 2022, with a one-year transition period to allow for planning applications underway at that time. This webinar will give you an understanding of the technical changes to the Building Regulations and what they mean to architects in their day-to-day work. We hope to see you there!
