CIOB responds to the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) welcomes publication of Dame Judith Hackitt’s final report of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety.
We are currently reviewing the conclusions of the report and as a matter of priority we will be working with government and the construction industry to ensure the buildings we live and work in are safe and the regulatory system for designing, constructing and managing buildings is as robust as required.
Chris Blythe OBE, chief executive of the CIOB said: “What the Independent Review has highlighted is that our industry is failing to consistently deliver the right standards of safety and quality in the buildings and infrastructure that we create, for reasons of ignorance, indifference, unclear responsibility and weak oversight. The conclusions from Dame Judith’s report will have far reaching implications across the sector, from those designing buildings right through to the construction and occupancy of them.
“It is clear that professionalism needs to be at the heart of this change and the CIOB is ready to play its part.”
Chris Blythe has been awarded an honorary degree by the University of Wolverhampton and is now an Honorary Doctor of Professional Practice.
