EXPERT PANEL DISCUSS BUILDING SAFETY AT BESA CONFERENCE
Darren Webster was a member of an online, multi-agency, expert panel at the recent - and first - virtual BESA Conference. The subject: Building Safety. Working together to deliver better solutions.
Darren was officially representing ADCAS in this forum; one of many ‘hats’. He was joined by other experienced industry experts from BESA, ASFP, FIS, Laing O'Rourke and more, to enlighten watchers with the latest news, opinions and guidance on this vital discipline.
As with Dame Judith Hackitt's speech, the need for unambiguous guidance, industry collaboration and regulatory compliance backed by independent third-party certification, rang out loud and clear.
Darren is always frank and earnest, especially on fire safety. When a question arose on the correct specification of fire resisting ductwork supports - particularly at penetration seals - he was the one to who everyone turned.
