“The Devils in the Detail” Event

One-day Compliance Awareness Seminar to be held at the Apex City Quay Hotel 1 West Victoria Dock Road Dundee DD1 3JP on Monday 28 August 2017


This seminar is being presented jointly by Local Authority Building Standards Scotland and the Federation of Master Builders with contributions from the Building Standards Division of the Scottish Government, LABSS, SER the Structural Certification Scheme Provider, Glasgow Caledonian University, Dundee and Angus College and a Contract Procurement professional. The seminar will run from 9.30am and finish at 3.45pm. The seminar will be made up of formal presentations in the morning and the first part of the afternoon followed by a delegate workshop to allow an exchange of views and discussion on the issues being raised and for feedback to LABSS.

The Seminar will be formally opened with a keynote speech from the Minister for Local Government and Housing, Kevin Stewart MSP.

The purpose of the Seminar is to raise awareness and to promote compliance of building standards in Scotland through joint working between Local Authority Verifiers and their industry partners. The “Compliance Agenda” is an important Scottish Government directive and LABSS wish to emphasise this initiative with renewed thinking with an emphasis on the importance of a holistic approach to construction exemplified by procurement, design, inspection, certification and verification and with a clear recognition of the fundamental skills needed which our training bodies can provide.  

It is hoped that delegates will get a better insight into the issues around compliance and the benefits to the construction and built environment agenda. It will also give speakers and delegates the opportunity of sharing past and present experiences and hopefully building a better working relationship within the “Compliance Agenda”

LABSS look forward to your presence on the day and extend a warm welcome with an expectation of an interesting and challenging day.
