This release was developed to ensure that you can meet the obligations introduced as part of the more stringent regulatory regime including but not limited to the Building Safety Act.

  1. The Regulatory Reform Order - Fire Safety
    The main challenges from these changes lie with the duties around the information that must be captured by competent persons, kept up-to-date, and then made available to the appropriate people in the required format and at the right time.
  2. Gateways
    The Gateways introduce stop/go points during the planning, design, contracting and occupation of relevant high-rise residential buildings. Each stage requires different applications, documents, and evidence to be approved before the next stage commences. The Building Safety Regulator will have robust enforcement tools where a breach has occurred.
  3. A Golden Thread of Information
    It will be the duty of the people responsible for a building to put in place and maintain a digital Golden Thread of information.

What’s New 

  • Document Library Clean-up
    Based on customer feedback we realised that global document libraries were cluttering each customer's library view. This clean-up will keep all library folders and requirements where you have already uploaded documents and remove the rest. This will allow you to then install one of our preconfigured document library templates.  
  • BS8644-1 Information
    We have included a framework to manage information that is required under BS8644-1. We have used this framework to preconfigure our document library templates with all the colour coded information you need. This is going to save you hours of work. 
  • Install Document Library Templates 
    The new document library templates have been preconfigured to include all the lifecycle stages, folders, deliverables, and destination, deliverable and collaborating parties for each deliverable under BS8644-1. Each template also contains the relevant preconfigured document collections that you will need for the various stages of each project. These comprehensive document library templates can be installed in 4 clicks. As we have already done everything for you, this is going to save you hours of work.  
  • Document Collections
    Allows you to group documents together into a collection which enables you to track, action, share and download these documents with ease.  
    • Track 
      Provides you with an on-demand compliance summary of which documents have been captured and which have yet to be uploaded.  
    • Action 
      Quickly upload missing documents directly from the collection view.   
    • Share Internally & Externally 
      Document collections can then be shared with internal and external users using a permalink. Shared collections can be set to expire after a given period or remain active indefinitely.  
    • Download 
      The summary and all the documents in the collection can be downloaded with a single click or the user can select individual documents they want to download.
  • Restful API
    Our API allows you to easily connect Risk Warden with other open software platforms and in-house apps which will streamline information transfer and eliminate double entry and human error.
