Part L, or Document L, is an amended building standard that states all new dwellings should be built with the aim to increase conservation of fuel and power.
This coincides with new building regulations that came into effect in England and Wales on June 15th. Although building regulations are a legal requirement and are therefore mandatory, Approved Documents (such as Document L) are suggestions of how to enforce a new building regulation.
The Part L standards have been amended with increased goals to reduce CO2 and other emissions.
In this case, in December 2021, the government announced new goals of 30% less CO2 than current standards and a 27% reduction of emissions as part of their ambition to achieve net zero. The new regulations have also been designed to preemptively prepare for the 2025 Building Standards, so there will be no need for retrofitting on new builds between 2022-2025.
Part L compliance is a small fraction of what Field View can do. Any form or approvals process you currently do with pen and paper – Field View can replicate and improve. From toolbox talks to site diaries and quality checks to project progress, employees can spend less time handling paperwork and more time being productive on-site.
