Following the Golden Thread to Safety

Round Table Building Insights Live 20 March 2024

In March 2024 the third Building Insights LIVE round table was held in London, featuring a multi-disciplinary expert panel looking at the impact of the Building Safety Act, and the Golden Thread of project data, on architects, developers and product manufacturers.

The group of architects, IT experts, developers and consultants, had an in-depth discussion on the ramifications for the industry of the new regime, which is a fundamental shift from traditional, more fragmented project relationships. However, the round table (which was sponsored by JELD-WEN, Siderise, and Saint Gobain Interior Solutions) also looked at the data management challenges of the Golden Thread, both for design teams and end users, and the need to bring robust decision-making to the front of the process.

James Parker, editor and chair of the event captures the key segments of the discussion, and the learnings for other professionals, including Recommendations for Industry, which professionals pursuing high-risk projects need to consider.
