Source:Diario de Burgos
Regulatory changes come pretty quickly, and in consequence Burgos Council tries to keep their majors and municipal technicians informed on the last updates so their daily duties can be performed easier. This seminar celebrated at Real Monasterio de San Agustín last June 11th is part of this philosophy to tackle the regulation related to “buildings’ energy efficiency, regulatory inspection and municipal emergency plans”.
Organized by the Council’s Advisory Service for Municipalities and Architecture, directed by vice-president José Ignacio Marín, in collaboration with SGS, this seminar was aimed at majors and municipal technicians because, as said by the regional Body, César Rico, it is really important to keep updated on issues subjected to many regulatory changes such as buildings’ security, energy saving and the maintenance of security and emergency plans”. Rico highlighted that the councils’ role in these issues is doubled, for they must care for the safety of their own buildings and also, as the role of supervisor, they must approve individuals or companies’ construction technical projects. Juan José Martín, SGS’ in Castilla y León Energy Efficiency and saving’s Manager, reviewed all aspects that the Buildings’ Energy Certification R. D. involve, and SGS’ Environmental and Health and Safety Division technician, Soraya Martínez, disserted on self-protection and emergency plans, as well as their scope. In particular, Martínez focused in the basic regulation for facilities dedicated to activities that may cause emergency situations.
Working with Agenbur
One of the main points of the seminar, due to the current crisis situation that forces the public bodies to implement all kind of measures to save money, was building’s energy efficiency. In relation to this, the Council’s president pointed that from this regional body there have been many actions implemented with local city councils through Burgos Region’s Energy Agency (Agenbur), in order to improve energy efficiency and efficacy of the council buildings both indoors and outdoors, like public lightning management, that may save funds in many of the local city councils subjected to energy audits without losing their quality”.
Rico was really satisfied with Agenbur’s performance in this area with the councils and remarked the Council’s Advisory Service for Municipalities and Architecture efforts to inform majors and municipal technician on regulatory changes, a role that, in his words, justifies the council’s work.
