In the rapidly changing economic and regulatory landscape, there are competing demands on the building fabric which present special challenges for CAB members. This conference will provide timely and practical information for the aluminium in building supply chain.

Proposed changes to Part L of the Building Regulations is a hot topic in the industry and our speakers will be providing the latest information available. We will also look at how regulations concerned with accessibility, fire and acoustics will impact construction projects in the future.

Our speakers are all recognised industry professionals who will provide useful guidance on the opportunities and threats faced by our sector and there will be time for a lively discussion and debate on all the topics presented.
