Timber Framed Buildings

The London Assembly’s Planning and Housing Committee have published a report following their inquiry into ‘Fire risks in London’s tall and timber framed buildings.’

This report lists a number of recommendations including: the use of fire suppression systems; site security measures; informing the local fire brigade and the HSE that a timber framed building is to be constructed and no partial or full occupation to be allowed of timber framed buildings until completed as a whole.

These suggestions are an indication of what the Government is likely to consider in its review of the Building Regulations starting in 2012/2013, and finishing in 2015/2016.
