Welcome to Series 4 of the BIM Academy Digital Climate Podcast. In this episode our new podcast host, Bola Abisogun OBE, Digital Director at BIM Academy, is joined by Paul Nash, Director of Paul Nash Consultancy and Past-President and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
In a career spanning nearly 40 years, Paul has worked with some of the world’s leading international construction companies and built environment consultancies. Today, Paul can be found providing advice to developers, contractors and investors in the property and construction sector on large, multi-million dollar projects.
Paul is actively engaged in raising awareness of key issues affecting the construction sector – in particular Building Safety. In 2017, Paul chaired a working group on procurement as part of the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety led by Dame Judith Hackitt, and is currently a member of the Industry Safety Steering Group that was established to drive culture change in the industry in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire.
In this podcast, Bola and Paul discuss the requirements of the new Building Safety Act in the UK and what new regulations building owners need to put in place before October 2023.
