Fire Safety in Residential Buildings Directors Briefing

Whilst the fundamental principles of fire safety management in residential buildings are the same as in any building, their specificities do require a different approach to their implementation. One of the key differences resides in the fact most are designed on the “stay put” principle. This relies on effective compartmentation of all residential units (such as flats) between themselves and the common parts.

Since the review of building regulations following the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017, new legislation has been introduced, with more to come, specifically aimed at improving the safety of high-rise residential buildings, and other buildings more generally, from the design stage and throughout their lifecycle.

This Directors Briefing takes you through:

•  Recommendations for residential building owners, Landlords and “Right to Manage” companies

•  Recommendations for residential building responsible persons and/or accountable persons

•  What has changed

•  Case law

•  Quick facts

•  Legal duties
