Super durable guaranteed performance.
Tata Steel has launched a new Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) approved Continuing Personal Development (CPD) seminar on the latest updates to Part L of the Building Regulations. The session, which is offered free of charge, is delivered by a Tata Steel representative.
The latest addition to the CPD seminars offered by Tata Steel is entitled ‘Part L 2021 edition: the role of the building envelope in compliance for non-domestic buildings’. It provides a comprehensive overview of the issues and updates to Part L: Conservation of fuel and power. As a RIBA assessed and approved CPD it is worth double CPD points to RIBA architects.
The CPD begins with background on the role of the building envelope in the conservation of energy, context on the history of Part L standards and an outline of the ongoing decarbonisation of the electricity supply in the UK. The CPD session then provides a detailed overview of the changes to Part L and the new requirements for both new build and refurbished buildings, as well as how this will impact the design of buildings. Also included in the session is a discussion of energy performance calculations and compliance, air-tightness testing, approaches to meeting lighting requirements and the role of on-site renewable and low-carbon energy generation. The CPD also meets core curriculum subjects of legal, regulatory, and statutory compliance and also sustainable architecture.
The CPD seminar is delivered by a Tata Steel representative and runs for approximately 50 minutes with time following the presentation for questions. The sessions are delivered directly to architects’ practices and can therefore be scheduled for a time and date that is most convenient for the participants.
Dave Taylor, Business Development Manager at Tata Steel, said: “Decarbonisation of buildings is now one of the most important factors in our drive to achieve net zero by 2050. Our new CPD has been created to provide architects and specifiers with the knowledge they need about the latest revisions to Part L, which represent the next step in pushing building performance forward in advance of the Future Building Standard in 2025.”
