What’s this webinar about?
Dame Judith Hackitt’s Final Report, Building a Safer Future, recommended that all higher risk residential buildings should have a “Golden Thread of information” detailing how it was designed, built and is being maintained. This would be a live document, held digitally, that exists alongside the physical asset. To help the industry, this short webinar will outline how the Golden Thread policy is looking to be implemented in England as part of a wider building safety programme of activity. It’ll also introduce BS 8644-1 Digital management of fire safety information for design, construction, handover and emergency response - Code of practice, which is being developed to support the Golden Thread policy.
