About this group
This Group has been assembled to help drive understanding and compliance with the Building Safety Act across the Midlands Region.
The tragic events on the 14th of June 2017 are engrained in our memory and as an industry we recognise that radical change is necessary to respond to the findings of the subsequent reports and inquiry. We must proactively embrace the required changes ahead of legislation, wherever possible, to ensure that life safety is always paramount in the construction services we deliver.
This Group therefore needs to understand the far-reaching implications of the BS Act and ensure that our membership and the Midlands Construction Industry generally, fully understands how they must respond beyond compliance.
Our thought leadership will be crucial in signposting the broad church in CE Midlands across all sectors to examples of best practice and case studies to accelerate our adoption of the new way of working and behaving.
