The Building Control & Regulations Expo, which is taking place at the National Arena, Sport Ireland Campus, Blanchardstown in Dublin on 22nd October 2020, will provide a forum for all those involved in building control in Ireland to meet and discuss the latest developments in design and construction techniques and technologies. The Event will help participants to keep up-to-date with any changes to building control regulations and associated legislation and potential future amendments.

Building Control Regulations apply generally to new buildings and to existing buildings which undergo an extension, a material alteration or a material change of use. The owner of the building, the designer, and the builder who carries out the works are responsible, under law, for compliance with Building Regulations and Building Control Regulations.

Through a combination of a comprehensive conference programme in conjunction with an exhibition of the latest products and services available, the Building Control & Regulations Expo will encompass all key aspects regarding the control, design and construction of buildings in order to ensure the health, safety and welfare of people within the build environment, access for people with disabilities and the conservation of fuel and energy.

Topics being covered include: developments in building control legislation; fire protection & safety; disability access; work commencement requirements; building control management systems; training opportunities; sound and insulation regulations; quality control in building materials; and construction products regulations.

The Building Control & Regulations Expo is a central part of the annual the National Construction Summit taking place on 22nd October. Reflecting the increasing focus on sustainability within the construction industry, the Building Control & Regulations Expo will be held alongside another co-located and complementary event - Passive & NZEB 2020, which will focus on energy efficiency, energy conservation and high energy performance in buildings.
