Part L of the Building Regulations has proved one of the most influential pieces of legislation for the construction industry. The last update in 2006 introduced the European Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) into UK law, resulting in new targets on emissions rates from new buildings; a new form of calculation methodology for those emissions and principles such as consequential improvements and building log books. The main elements of Part L will not be changed in the 2010 version, however, there are some significant developments in how different types of building will be treated, and there is a strengthening of areas such as compliance to ensure that there is less of a gap between buildings as they are designed, and buildings as they are constructed and operated.
