Building Safety Act webinar

2 - 4 pm

Join experts from Browne Jacobson and Wintech at the Building Safety Act webinar where we will examine some key questions arising out of the Act in detail including:

  • What is the impact of Martlet Homes Limited -v- Mulally and Co Limited, the first High Court judgment on a claim concerning fire safety defects in cladding on a high rise building since the Grenfell Tower disaster in 2017?
  • What issues arise out of Building Liability Orders? To what extent can companies restructure to avoid these issues?
  • The Building Safety Act does not alter the Building Regulations – what issues remain unclear and / or problematic for designers and constructors?
  • To what extent do the changes in the Building Safety Act leave contractors and designers open to additional claims? In particular, what impact will the following have?
    • Extension to limitation periods
    • Defective Premises Act 1972 / expanding the right to claim under this Act to cover any work undertaken on an existing dwelling, provided that work was done in the course of a business (so including maintenance and refurbishment)
    • Bringing into force section 38 of Building Act 1984

This session promises to be informative, and will offer the opportunity for questions with our speakers: Tim Claremont (Partner, Browne Jacobson), Gavin Hoccom (Senior Associate, Browne Jacobson), Emma Wake (Legal Director, Browne Jacobson), Clare Hanna (Senior Associate, Browne Jacobson) and Nadha Darwood (Façade Engineer / Director, Wintech).
