This newly updated course, will cover the recently enacted Building Control Amendment Regulations 2014, together with its associated Code of Practice. This SI 9 has significantly changed the way buildings are inspected and certified, and will hopefully in turn bring more work to construction professionals. Part of the inspection procedure will now include CE marking of materials in accordance with the new Construction Products Regulations which came into effect July 2014. A third area that has been added to this short course is the new Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2012. This course also addresses all key aspects of the building regulations, provides a brief introduction to the Eurocodes, and should be invaluable to both new users of the building regulation guidance documents, and those that may enjoy a refresher course. All those involved in the construction industry will find this short course useful, particularly those involved in design, detailing, construction overseeing & inspection, and certification of building projects.
