Integrating and maintaining fire safety throughout the building’s life cycle
This launch event will address the key fire safety considerations, building regulations, identify best practice and provide expert knowledge to best advise your clients.
The tragedies of major fire incidents in recent years have cast a spotlight on fire safety standards, building regulations and risk management. Numerous inquiries have found a need for significant improvements and called for professionals operating within the built environment to take accountability for their role in driving fire safety standards within the sector.
This is leading towards a major cultural shift, with consideration of fire safety at every stage of a building’s life cycle essential to ensuring improved outcomes for the industry as a whole. Understanding the core elements are crucial, from design and engineering, to maintaining fire safety during occupation and ensuring ongoing compliance.
RICS Fire Safety Conference brings together leading experts in the field to address the key considerations, identify best practice and adopt strategies to ensure they are adhering to the highest standards.
Attend this conference to benefit from expert discussion around technical content and guidance, including:
- International Fire Safety Standards
- Passive fire protection and insulation
- Human behaviour and fire
- Fire-related building defects
- Detection and suppression systems
- Performance-based fire engineering
- Fire safety in different property types
- Fire testing and risk assessment
- Remediation – not as straight forward as you think
- The Golden Thread: a panel discussion on the roles and responsibilities of professionals involved across the building life-cycle

There is a long journey ahead to successfully adapt, innovate and increase productivity in the built environment.
Digital is starting to catalyse change, as digital platforms enable work to be done differently. This means that behaviour, skills and methods of working need to keep pace. The true value of data and technology as tools need to be unlocked within the industry.
This event aims to accelerate this change within the industry by providing global perspectives and access to knowledge from different sectors to drive the digital revolution in civil engineering.
The 2018 event will focus on being security minded, alongside the three key themes of productivity, behaviour and value of data.
The 2017 event featured speakers from Atkins, Digital Catapult, Microsoft, Topcon, Tube Lines, Mott MacDonald and more.
Delegates for the 2017 event said:
“The event was even better than I thought it would be. It has given me ideas that I have taken back with me to up my productivity at work”
“Enjoyed listening to experienced individuals who have a passion in delivering innovative and cost effective solutions”
“Further enhanced my appreciation of the value of data to the delivery of the built environment. A great day with some well chosen, thought provoking speakers. Took much away and will take some time to digest and integrate”

Following the success of last year’s Inspire Summit, the one day conference and exhibition returns to Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall on the 25th September.
The focus for the 2018 summit is how we attract and retain women in the construction and related industries, with tangible takeaways for industry participants who want to increase their gender diversity.
TRACK 1: With the ‘Inspire Industry Change’ conference track, delegates can expect a comprehensive business case for why the industry needs to change and expert presentations on what needs to be done and how we can achieve gender equality in UK construction, engineering & housing. This will comprise a balanced gender mix of speakers and is aimed at attracting professionals of all sexes who are serious about achieving gender parity in their organisation and the wider industry.
TRACK 2: As with the 2017 event, the paid professional delegates will subsidise free attendance for students, apprentices and women of all ages who don’t currently work in the sector (but are considering doing so) to attend the ‘Inspire the next generation’ conference track. Presentations will highlight current & future roles in construction, break down stereotypes, hear from inspirational female role models, showcase live projects and offer viable routes into an exciting career in the building industry.

A one-stop shop for all your essential legal, technical and valuation guidance.
Firmly established as the UK’s leading dilapidations event, The RICS Dilapidations Forum Annual Conference returns in 2018 to provide critical updates for practising building surveyors, valuers and legal experts.
Chaired by Paul Spaven of TFT, this event will provide a one-stop shop for all your essential legal, technical and valuation guidance. Bringing together leading industry speakers, it provides you with a unique opportunity for you to understand legal essentials, refresh your practical knowledge and learn about the client perspective.
This year’s breakout sessions once again offer delegates the chance to tailor their agenda to best suit their specific areas of interest, with a choice of content focussed on mechanical and electrical installations and dilapidations valuations. Plus enjoy the post-event Drinks Reception where you can network with colleagues and our expert speakers.
Join 400+ attendees to receive the very latest updates and ensure you remain at the forefront of this complex area of practice.
Tailor your day to best meet your specific professional development requirements by choosing one of the two breakout sessions:
A focus on consequential claims for loss of rent
Considering the legal and surveying perspectives, Nicholas Taggart (Landmark Chambers) and Richard Kay (Beckett and Kay Chartered Surveyors) will focus on consequential claims for loss of rent, including practical valuation problems in assessing loss of rent claims, the legal basis for claiming loss of rent, analysis of section 18, and marketing periods, incentives and the operative cause of the loss.
Mechanical and electrical update
Dr David Arnold (Troup Bywaters and Anders) will deliver the mechanical and electrical engineering update, exploring common issues and how they can be best resolved, as well as the reliability of economic lifetables, why M&E dilapidations are different and whether one should repair or replace in the case of a major dilapidated M&E plant.
- Legal speakeasy: put your questions on contentious matters relating to dilapidations to our panel of expert barristers from Falcon Chambers, including Wayne Clark, Emily Windsor and Anthony Tanney.
- Schedules of condition: understand some of the most common errors and issues in schedules of condition with Adam Nash (GVA).
- Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards: combining the technical and legal expertise of Peter Williams (Shoosmiths), Stephen Lemmon and Nicholas Dowding QC (Malcolm Hollis), this session will explore how MEES operate, what works need to be carried out in order to comply with the standards, as well as implications for dilapidations disputes.
- Conflicts of interest: William Glassey and James Morris (Mayer Brown) will deliver an in-depth session examining the RICS global professional statement on conflicts of interest and it’s practical application.
- Negotiation for dilapidation professionals: back by popular demand, Nick Davies (The Really Great Training Company) joins us once again to delve into the crucial negotiation skills required to be a successful dilapidations practitioner.
- Closing keynote: The client perspective. This year’s ‘fireside chat’ will give you invaluable insight into the landlord and tenant perspectives and will explore what your clients require from you in your role as a dilapidations surveyor. Sally Duggleby (Savills) and Stuart Davies (ProLogis) will consider the impact future dilapidation liabilities have on commercial decisions when agreeing new terms, to give you insight into your clients’ decision-making process.
