Retrofitting to meet Fire Safety, BCAR standards and Part L requirements
The Role of BIM in enabling better retrofitting and conservation
A one-day conference
Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin
Date: 18th October 2018
This is a very popular topic at present with the volume of public and private sector buildings being retrofitted to meet fire safety, BCAR standards and Part L requirements
Across the country retrofits continue to increase in complexity and technology to keep up with new construction trends, evolving code requirements and regulations or requests for greater durability and usability from owners and investors. How can contractors keep up with these increasing build and technology demands?
This is a must attend event for any professionals directly or indirectly involved in the retrofitting process or standards and compliance surrounding it.
