On 7th February, Andrew Stunell, Minister for Building Regulations, opened the Part L 2013 Consultation conference, a unique one-day event hosted by BRE, at which the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) launched a consultation on the proposed changes to Part L of Building Regulations in England.
The conference provided a platform for DCLG officials and their technical advisors to present the detail of the proposed changes in the context of the Government's overall low-carbon strategy.
The overall impacts of the proposed 2013 changes are expected to:
- Strengthen new-build standards to pave the way towards zero carbon.
- Introduce a separate fabric energy efficiency target for new dwellings.
- Propose changes to the associated calculation tools, SAP and SBEM.
- Increase the standards of energy efficiency for existing buildings and secure greater take up of improvement to support the Government's planned Green Deal initiative.
- Introduce measures to incentivise improved compliance and as built performance.
