Introducing Industry Insights by Leviat

Bringing clarity to an ever-changing regulatory landscape

The Construction sector is complex. Regulatory systems are constantly evolving and the pace at which legislation is changing is rapidly increasing. The complexity of this new regulatory landscape, alongside the construction sector being under closer scrutiny, means many are feeling challenged when trying to stay up-to-date and make informed decisions in relation to material choices and many more topics.

The design and construction of buildings is a joint responsibility across the entire supply chain from architects and designers to contractors, consultants and manufacturers. By working together, we can improve the quality of buildings and ensure they perform as designed with respect to fire, thermal and acoustic requirements. 

Cutting through the noise of legislation

Leviat’s Industry Insights  series aims to educate and provide clear cut, easy to understand information on a variety of topics including the latest building regulations, product certification, transparency of information, building safety, installation and competency, and much more.
