Part L Round Table Podcast

Getting round the table to debate Part L

From the initial consultation on the proposed changes to Part L of Building Regulations all the way to the anticipated publication date in December, the team here at AluK have been right at the heart of the conversation on what the implications are likely to be on the window and door market.

As well as a focus on developing product enhancements and innovations which will ensure that our customers can comply with the new rules, we’ve been working hard to raise broader awareness and encourage a joined-up approach between design, fabrication, installation and the end-user in order to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

We’ve compiled this guide to the Future Homes Standard and changes to Part L, and will be sharing updates as soon as the Government release them.

Listen to the Round Table Podcast

In October 2021, we held a Part L & Future Homes Standard Round Table at our Design Studio in London. Recorded as a podcast available for download, the debate covered everything from whether proposed changes to Part L Building Regulations had been communicated well enough, to the design and manufacturing implications, and likely costs, that these changes will bring.

In the first recorded live industry-wide event on this hot topic, we brought together representatives from Saint-Gobain, MACO and the GGF, as well as building control and a renowned London-based architects’ practice. In a frank and lively debate, we considered the impact the new Part L changes might have on the shift towards triple glazing, what changes specifiers are likely to make to ensure that their developments comply, how the new Part L will be policed, and the implications for both fabricators and installers.

Meet the round table panel!

The round table panel comprised: Sioned Roberts and Dale Pegler from AluK, Gareth Allen from Saint Gobain, Craig Bryant from MACO, Ryan Johnson from Emplas, Kevin Jones from the GGF, John Miles from Assent Building Control and Mark Taylor from architects Allies & Morrison. Each contributed a different perspective on the likely implications of the proposed two stage reduction in U-Values between 2022 and 2025, and there was plenty of discussion and debate on who would be required to pay for that.
