The IBCI Annual Conference is the main forum for building control in Ireland. It provides an opportunity for local authority staff, civil servants and those engaged in private practice to come together to discuss topical issues affecting the design and construction of buildings. A programme of presentations in conjunction with a trade show helps participants gain a greater understanding of relevant topics and update their knowledge of changes in building regulations and the associated legislation.
