Hub for Part L
PILKINGTON UNITED KINGDOM has launched an online hub with regular articles, videos and guides aimed at keeping building design industry professionals informed on the latest developments from the upcoming changes to Part L (conservation of fuel and power) in England.
European regulatory marketing managerPhil Brown said: “Our dedicated Part L hub will pool in-house expertise in building regulations, while leveraging our participation with key bodies engaged in the consultations such as the Flat Glass Manufacturers' Association, to deliver trusted advice and guidance on Part L developments as they happen.
“Changes to Part L will no doubt change the specification of energy efficient building products supplied for all types of projects in the UK. As such, they’ll need to be considered carefully in the construction supply chain from architects and developers through to installers, ensuring compliance with what are expected to be new, higher standards for energy efficiency.”
Consultations are expected to complete by early / mid 2020, with the updated Approved Documents being published by mid-2020 and coming into force by the end of the year. The Government has proposed two options for Part L of the Building Regulations for new dwellings in England.
