Following on from Dame Judith Hackitt’s invitation to LABC to participate in three working groups, LABC’s Commercial Director, Martin Taylor, has now been asked to sit on an additional Golden Thread working group.

The Golden Thread group will focus on key points from the interim report into into the Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, including the need for a golden thread for all complex and high risk building projects so that the original design intent is preserved and any changes go through a formal review process.

Commenting Lorna Stimpson, Deputy MD for LABC said, “LABC is committed to the highest possible professional standards and effective building regulation. 

"These are important working groups informing the recommendations of the Hackitt Review and we welcome the opportunity to add our expertise to their deliberations.”
