Fire Safety and Cladding

Disaster is often the catalyst for change to bring learning and awareness across the industry. the 2017 Grenfell tower fire in London, and the 2014 Lacrosse Tower fire in Melbourne are examples of that. It has sprung government bodies and associations to work on specific measures to address the fire safety risks associated with external wall cladding in buildings.

As a result, several states have started taking action to address the widespread use of flammable building cladding in high-rise constructions.

In Queensland, the building and other legislation (Cladding) amendment regulation 2018 (QLD) came into effect on 1 October 2018. The regulation applies to buildings constructed after 1 January 1994 and will require owners to complete an online checklist by 29 March 2019 to identify buildings affected by combustible cladding. Depending on the type of cladding disclosed, owners may then be required to procure further expert reports or give fire safety notices to tenants and future purchasers.

after the tremendous success and sold out events in New South Wales and Victoria, Corpolinx, therefore, is now hosting the 3nd Edition Fire safety and Cladding summit, scheduled for 26-27 February 2019 in Queensland. The event is designed to bring together fire and construction industry mainly focus in fire safety practice, engineering and risk management involved in cladding by exclusive networking sessions, professional and interactive panel discussions as well as topical case studies addressing the challenges faced and to assess solutions and services in this space to help achieve business outcomes.
