UK consults on architects’ fire competence

UK Government proposes greater accountability and responsibility for fire & structural safety for architects, throughout buildings lifecycles, including design phase. This follows the conclusions of the independent (Hackitt) review (see pinfa Newsletter n°92) following the Grenfell Tower fire. The UK Government proposes to modify the Architects Act 1997 to improve architects’ competence and training on fire safety and fire regulations, and to formulate a system of international fire safety qualification recognition.

UK Government public consultation open to 22nd January 2021
