Sydney (Conference) | 27 - 28 February 2018
Sydney (Post-Conference Workshop) | 1 March 2018
The safety of all Australians is dependent on discourse and solution.
With the same amount of energy released as petrol and with an even higher density, one square metre of polyethylene cladding is the equivalent of over five litres of petrol. Dr Tony Enright aptly called this "buildings wrapped in petrol". There is an unquantifiable amount of this cladding on buildings nation-wide - the building product supply chain is pivotal in the role of fire safety and prevention in Australia.
Safe Cladding and Buildings Summit is the first 2-day conference in Sydney specially designed for key links in the building product supply chain. An unprecedented event, we invite you to look towards new legislation, new regulations and better certification processes for safer building practices.
“The public has a right when they go to sleep at night to know that their families and they are safe in their beds and it’s the government’s responsibility to ensure that’s the case,” Senator Chris Ketter, Chair, Senate Economics References Committee
“Councils everywhere also have a responsibility to make sure our buildings are safe and that we’re not putting our residents at risk of this kind of fire happening here,” Jill Merrin, Councillor, Wollongong Council
“There are apartment buildings right across Australia that potentially have this cladding issue,” Richard Wynne, Victorian Planning Minister
The Grenfell Tower tragedy of 2017 has brought Non-Conforming Building Products into question.
1st March | 9am-5pm
This workshop is designed to provide statutory building surveyors, product certifiers and systems accreditors with the skills and knowledge to assess, evaluate and apply building requirements effectively. Attendees will gain an understanding of building codes, fire technology principles and how to overcome shortcomings the industry presents to the building surveying practice. Delegates will also learn how to address issues faced in the building industry, and how to successfully interpret current legislation and the National Construction Code.
This workshop is designed to be a continued discourse of the conference, where building industry professionals can collaborate for a unified and mutual understanding of building code standards and practices.
