Learning from Grenfell

The Grenfell Tower fire and the subsequent (ongoing) public inquiry forced a major reassessment of how we design, monitor and deliver housing in the UK, and in particular how we should approach the question of fire safety.

In response to this, The Architects’ Journal and AJ Specification launched the Fire Safety Design Conference in 2021, where we united a community of over 600 people to examine the lessons learned from the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, focussing on the implications for design, specification, and management within architectural practices.

Following this successful launch, we’re pleased to be bringing you the second Virtual conference in this series on November 3, 2022 where we will once again be delivering a variety of need-to-know content in an easily accessible way.

With the specific outcomes of Phase 2 of the Grenfell Inquiry delayed until 2023, we’ll be examining the nature, scope and progress of the Grenfell Inquiry, and why changes taking place as a result will be of significance for the profession and its future.
