The Building Safety Act 2022

The parts of the Building Safety Act 2022 that THS Concepts can offer assistance with involves verifying and providing information on the height of the building. This is a critical factor in determining who is responsible for the repair of the structure.

This legislative measure aims to protect tenants / leaseholders from excessive costs related to building safety, such as the removal of potentially dangerous cladding materials.

The Building Safety Act of 2022 outlines 2 key measurements that determine a number of implications for freeholders and leaseholders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Instead of re-inventing the wheel are writing a piece ourselves, we have found a very useful blog article from Pennington Choices titled “The Building Safety Act 2022: Everything you need to know in 5 minutes“.

The measurement process is given by the following part of the act:

Building Safety Act 2022 – Part 5 – Remediation of certain defects – Section 118 – Section 117:Height of buildings and number of storeys

We start by walking round the building to establish the lowest point adjacent to the ground floor. This could be at one of the entrances to a building, or an emergency exit.

We then move up to the top of the building and find the finished floor level of the highest occupied floor (not including plant or roof levels).

Following this, we then work our way up a communal stairwell, carefully taking measurements. The idea being to establish the difference in height between the ground level and the top level in the building.

Once we have established this level, we can then produce our survey report and issue it to the client.

We have written a quick guide on how to measure your own building for the building safety act.
