New January Date for RIAI Skillnet CPD Road Show: Part L 2011

Published: Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Following the popular RIAI Skillnet CPD Road Show on Part L 2011 held in November and December 2011, a new date has been added for Wednesday 18 January 2012, in the RIAI, 8 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. Over 300 RIAI architects attended seminars in Dublin, Cork and Galway in November and December 2011. RIAI Practice Director, Joe Miller has stressed the importance of the forthcoming revised Part L of the Building Regulations for architects: “I cannot stress enough how important it is to understand the forthcoming changes in Part L 2011 of the Building Regulations to the way we design domestic dwellings. As you will see below, Part L 2011 came into force on the 1st December 2011, compliance will be required with Part L 2011 for planning applications on and after 1st December 2011.

Compliance with Part L requirement is quite onerous, both in terms of design and construction. The Part L Road Show programme will analyse the changes that are relevant in the new Part L 2011 and comparisons will be drawn between them and the current Part L requirements. The case studies, which form the latter part of the Road Show, will demonstrate how compliance can be achieved at the design stage, in some cases with the greatest difficulty, for the semi-detached house; an apartment building; an extension to an existing dwelling and an historic building with an exempted development to the rear. We announce the RIAI Road Show below and urge as many of the RIAI members, as possible, to attend.”
