Building Safety Act - The Law is Changing

14th March 2023, 6pm for 6.30pm start

AluK Design Studio, 5-11 Worship Street, London, EC2A 2BH

What does the law expect of you? Risk should now be ‘owned and managed by those who create it.

George and Katy, barristers at 4 Pump Court will talk about the products used by the construction industry. They'll look at the new roles in construction and building management, and how to manage risk.

They will also review changes to the legal liability of contractors and consultants. How will the changes materially alter your liability if you are involved in residential development and management? 

What does this mean for contractors, consultants, building managers - and their insurers?
