The Part L 2020 consultation process has commenced with proposals being released for new dwellings. The corresponding proposals have yet to be issued for existing buildings other than dwellings (e.g. offices, retail, etc.), but we are expecting major changes to the requirements of replacement windows and doors.
The consultation on proposed changes for existing buildings other than dwellings are anticipated in accordance with the following timeline:
| Late 2019 / early 2020
|| Consultation on energy efficiency standards for existing buildings other than dwellings
| Early / mid 2020
|| Publication of new Part L, Part F and overheating regulations
| Mid / late 2020
|| Part L, Part F and overheating regulations come into force
If you have any questions on Part L 2020 and what the implications might be for glass, please complete our online contact form, selecting 'Architect' or 'Trade' as the Enquiry Type and 'Part L 2020' as the Nature of Your Enquiry.
