Glass manufacturer Pilkington is hosting a webinar on 23rd June 2009 at 11am to give unrivalled insight into the new Part L of the Building Regulations, offering advice and solutions from some of the key players in the consultation process.

With major revisions just around the corner, it is imperative architects and specifiers are up-to-speed with how the proposed changes are likely to affect their designs.

Organised in conjunction with Building Magazine the webinar will feature: Paul Davidson, Director, Sustainable Energy Group, BRE. Paul has been involved in the energy efficiency of buildings for many years, particularly in the dissemination and promotion of information and guidance to all parts of the building sector.

Ian Ritchie, Director, Ian Ritchie Architects Ltd. His practices have contributed to major new architectural and engineering works throughout Europe and Ian regularly lectures on urbanism, regeneration and glass technology.

Phil Brown, European Regulatory Manager, Pilkington. Phil monitors and assesses the impact of new and forthcoming European directives and national building regulations. Phil is the UK representative on several European and International Standards Technical Committees for glass in building.

The free webinar will take place at 11am on Tuesday 23rd June and can be accessed by visiting: and clicking on the webinar short cut. Aimed at architects, specifiers and building control officers who are responsible for ensuring their building meets the new regulations, as well as window companies, fabricators and installers who supply the housebuilder, replacement window and commercial markets, the webinar is a must see for all those involved in the construction process.

Phil Brown, European Regulatory Manager, Pilkington, said: “The changes to Part L will have repercussions throughout the glazing industry. The anticipated changes are good news for building designers and window and façade companies as it will create increased demand for higher performing products and it is important the fenestration industry understands the implications of this. The 2010 Part L will continue to take into account fully the positive energy benefits of glazing. This means moving away from the traditional fixation with U-values, with the full benefits of larger areas of glazing recognised. Architects will see glazing in a new light and will no longer reduce the size of windows to tighten U-values.”
