Part L 2021/FHS/FBS Briefing Note

The uplift will drive improved energy efficiencies in new and existing buildings, and marks the start of an upskilling phase that will ready the industry for the introduction of another net zero-ready standard in 2025.

.

As a flagship policy to drive energy efficiency in buildings and as a stepping stone to the Future Homes Standard and the Future Buildings Standard, which will come into force in 2025, an uplift to Part L of the Building Regulations has been implemented in June 2022.

The uplift will drive improved energy efficiencies in new and existing buildings, and marks the start of an upskilling phase that will ready the industry for the introduction of another net zero-ready standard in 2025. Guidance on overheating in new dwellings has also been introduced, requiring more detailed overheating modelling to be undertaken for many proposals. We have produced a Briefing Note that outlines the changes implemented as part of the uplift to the Building Regulations, as well as the vision of the Future Homes Standard and the Future Buildings Standard, both of which will be implemented in 2025.
