Part L1a Awareness Training Session
On 26th June our On Construction Support Team Leader Jason Hewins visited the offices of Newham Council to deliver a training session on Part L1A of the Building Regulations to members of their building control department.
Reflecting on the day Jason said, “We discussed the origins of Part L1A, how it has developed over the past twenty years and explained the current five criterion that form the current document. Particular focus was given to what to look for on compliance reports submitted by On Construction Domestic Energy Assessors (OCDEAs) and the importance of using competent individuals to carry out SAP assessments and air pressure tests".
Zilan Keklik, a Building Control Officer at Newham Building Control, commented:
"The course was very useful, and was delivered by a very experienced trainer with great knowledge, who knew his subject very well. Part L1A is not as complicated as I thought it was, I now have a clear understanding of what SAP calculations are all about!”
Elmhurst are keen to work with local authorities and approved inspectors to highlight the importance of Part L1A and the requirements of the current regulations. Should you be interested in us delivering this training at your company please contact us on 01455 883 236.
