Event Summary

The CABE Certificate in Building Control has been the foundation of many professional careers and is essential learning for those working in Building Control and those designing to meet the Building Regulations. Where possible the course includes real-life examples, theoretical calculations and considerations for design and plan assessment as well as features to consider during site inspection. The course has been revised to take account of recent changes and the format has been changed to a six day course to provide intensive learning and minimise time away from the work environment.

Week One Consists of:

Day 1 – Legislation and Building Control
This one day seminar will explore the Building Regulations, information required during the design and construction process, and what happens when works don’t proceed to plan. You will gain an understanding of enforcement options and processes and possible consequences of non-compliance. Additionally you will gain an understanding of the legislation and the obligations placed on organisations and individuals and will consider associated issues such as dangerous structures, demolitions and ancillary legislation.

Day 2 – Parts A, C, D, H & P
This one day seminar will look at the minimum standards set by parts A, C, D, H  & P of the Building Regulations in relation to structural safety, resistance to contaminants and moisture and toxic substances, sanitary accommodation, drainage and rainwater and grey water usage, as well as considering electrical safety.

You will examine in detail the guidance given in the Approved Documents and possible alternatives given in British Standards and other guides.

Day 3 – Part B – Means of Escape
This one day seminar will look at the minimum standards set by part B1 of the Building Regulations in relation to means of escape. Using worked examples you will also examine in detail the guidance given in the Approved Documents using examples to illustrate possible solutions and possible alternatives given in BS9999 and other guides.

This seminar can be taken as a stand-alone course or forms part of the Certificate in Building Control. To gain the certification you must complete both Weeks One and Two. Week Two commences on 13 September 2016.
