Assembly Point

In this new episode of Assembly Point, the FPA’s Howard Passey speaks to Jane Duncan OBE, chair of the expert panel on fire safety at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Jane discusses how Grenfell was a ‘turning point’ for building safety, and she and Howard explore how architects, construction teams and building owners can work together to understand and prioritise fire safety from the very start of a project. Drawing on her own experiences, Jane also shares her thoughts on the draft Building Safety Bill and the action that is still needed to support architects in building fire competency.
