Crofton to hold free seminar on new stringent energy performance regulations

2 Nov 10 Crofton, the Tonbridge based consulting engineer, is holding a seminar on how businesses can comply with tough new energy performance regulations that involve harsh penalties " with fines of up to £5,000 if they are not adhered to.

This breakfast seminar will take place on 17th November 2010 at the Tudor Park Marriot Hotel, Maidstone, Kent from 8.15am to 10.30am. Entry is free and breakfast rolls will be provided. 

The new building regulation came into effect on 1st October 2010. From this date, any building work carried out to new or existing buildings requires a 25% improvement on previous energy standards. Failure to comply can mean a £5,000 fine plus a fine of £50 everyday until the regulation is adhered to.

Barry Henson, Building Services Director at Crofton will discuss the impact of the proposed changes when undertaking refurbishments to existing buildings and outline the implications for managing the new regulation at the seminar.

Henson commented: “Businesses need to know that on the 1st October 2010 new rules came into effect that have dramatically changed energy performance requirements.  Failure to comply with this legislation can mean serious penalties so it is important for businesses to be fully briefed. We expect the seminar to be of special interest to facilities managers, architects, local authorities, contractors and project managers.”

This new “Part L” of the Building Regulations, aims to help meet global warming reduction targets to which the UK Government has signed up.
