Early Adopters

The industry is driving action to improve building safety by making improvements to current practice and behaviours

The Early Adopters Scheme was developed by Government to support the industry to in driving forward the cultural changes needed to achieve a safer building system now, and in the future.

The scheme encompasses eight industry organisations who are committed to taking action on building safety in order to change practice and behaviour, in advance of legislation.

The founders of this scheme are Barratt Developments, Kier, L&Q, Peabody, Salix Homes, United Living, Wates and Willmott Dixon.

As part of the scheme, the Early Adopters have been working with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to trial and test proposed policy options for the new regulatory regime. The group has also been working collaboratively to create and participate in opportunities to share their experience of improving building safety with the wider industry.

The Early Adopters are committed to spearheading cultural change across the industry and the development of the Building Safety Charter is the first step to achieving this change.
