Recommendations on the future regulation of the Building Control Sector and Profession in England, published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on behalf of the Future of Building Control Working Group in July 2020, defines complex buildings as: ‘…those where the approach to design and construction adopts more complex approaches, as opposed to following the minimum standards suitable to common circumstances as set out in guidance, such as that contained in Approved Documents. This allows a more transparent and flexible approach to achieving building safety through use of a structured approach to risk-based design where designers and Building Standards Professionals can take account of varying physical and human factors.’
