The Building Regulations (Amendment) Regulations 2017 introduce additional energy efficiency requirements for new building developments. Planning permission has been granted for a new maternity hospital on the St Vincent's University Hospital campus, the design for which exceeds the existing statutory energy efficiency requirements. I understand that the project falls within the transitional arrangements provided as part of the implementation of the legislation.
