High-rise building wall design
Submit a record of the design and construction of external walls for high-rise buildings in Devon and Somerset.
Design and materials of external walls
Regulation 5 of the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 requires responsible persons of high-rise residential buildings to prepare a record of the design of the external walls and share it with the fire and rescue service.
This will assist with operational pre-planning and provide useful information to firefighters at the time of a fire.
As well as providing details of the materials used in the wall construction, responsible persons will also be required to provide information on the level of risk of fire spread that the external wall structure poses, and any steps that have been taken to mitigate these risks.
Responsible persons should complete the online form to provide us with the necessary information required by the regulations.
