Non-Conforming Building Products

 

The Lacrosse Fire in Melbourne and the Grenfell Fire in London have highlighted some very significant issues with combustible cladding and insulation materials forming facades on buildings and the potential for very series property damage and tragic loss of life in Australia due to building products being installed which do not conform to the NCC/BCA requirements.

Widespread anecdotal evidence from professional engineers, property principles and insurers in the field also suggest that not only are the major problems with building facades and non-confirming cladding across the country, but there are a significant number of other concerns that have a seriously detrimental impact on the quality of buildings and health and safety of occupants.
