The inaugural Building Services Forum will take place on 8 February 2018 at the Building Centre, London.
Building regulations, legislation and enforced guidance procedures are vital to building a better future. The Building Services Forum is a hub for industry professionals to share knowledge and ideas under one roof, initiating conversations and debates about current issues and future developments.
Russell Beattie, FETA’s chief executive officer, is to introduce the CPD-accredited seminar programme at the Forum. When asked to consider the building services landscape over the next 10 years, Russell comments: “Ideally, we will have seen a wholesale review of building regulations in the wake of the Grenfell Review with close cooperation from industry to result in much more usable and practical guidance.
“Above all else, any regulations need to be enforced and that should embrace professional standards of installation and maintenance as well as building and product design. That said, there is scope for streamlining and the process must be capable of coping with change and innovation.”
The Building Services Forum is the ideal space to prepare for this future by acknowledging changes that are happening now and the necessary methods needed to tighten up regulations. Networking with members from all areas of the building services industry is an integral part of the Forum, encouraging a cooperative environment in which to build knowledge and interact with trade bodies.
