When schools and colleges have new education buildings constructed or refurbished, they assume that these will be in compliance with all the relevant standards and regulations and in accordance with best practice.
However end users are sometimes finding that this is not necessarily the case and are left with a liability or an expectation which did not meet their original vision or requirements.
Come and join us as our panel of experts look into the reasons behind this:
Why are works not completed to the required standard?
How can certification of compliance be in place but tests subsequently invalidate them?
Is non compliance due to inadequate client briefs or employers requirements?
Are schools made clear of their obligations under the School Premises Regulation or Equalities Act once a project is complete?
