Australian Cladding & Building Standards Summit

7-8 December 2017

Novotel on Collins, Melbourne

 

In the wake of the 2014 Lacrosse Tower fire in Melbourne and more recently the tragic fire in London's Grenfell Tower, federal, state, and local governments, regulators and industry bodies throughout Australia are faced with the urgent need for audits and testing of existing buildings for non-conforming building products. There are a number of unanswered questions around the need for new safety standards, a new system for compliance regulation and uncertainties around who pays for the replacement of non-conforming building products.

 

The Australian Cladding & Building Standards Summit will address these issues and more. To find out more about this landmark event for the building and construction industry click here.

FireNZ 2017 Conference & Exhibition

Hosted by the Fire Protection Association of New Zealand, the Society of Fire Protection Engineers NZ Chapter, and the Institution of Fire Engineers New Zealand Branch

 

The conference theme "The Beginning of a New Era" is an opportunity to look at how we do things in a fresh light and forge a better fire safe future for ourselves and the public we serve. The new Fire and Emergency Act, the wrapping up of the MBIE working groups on Alternative Solutions, VM2 tall buildings and supported housing for example will change the ways we do things and create new opportunities.
