Competence and the Principal Designer Under the New Building Safety Regime Webinar

The building safety regime has undergone a fundamental change, and one of its new core pillars is competence. The newly appointed Principal Designers play a vital role in construction projects and are legally obliged to demonstrate their competency in designing and delivering safe buildings for users.

These changes came into force in late 2023, impacting how architects and designers are appointed, with new obligations placed on the clients who instruct them, too. 

To help professionals navigate this new landscape, SPACE CEO Rob Charlton and Simon Lewis, Partner at Womble Bond Dickinson, are hosting a webinar on Tuesday, March 26th, between 10:00 and 11:00am. Click here to sign-up.

During the webinar, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of competence and the role of the Principal Designer under the new building safety regime. The speakers will cover a range of topics, including exploring the new legal competence framework, highlighting key standards and guidance available to the industry, updating attendees on how the new competence requirements are affecting the architect profession, and identifying challenges and practical actions for architects, designers, and clients in meeting competency requirements.

Whether you're an architect, designer, or client, this webinar is an opportunity to learn about the changes to the building safety regime and how to comply with the new legal requirements. The speakers will also answer questions raised by attendees on competence and the next steps.
