Four Corners: "Combustible: The dangerous legacy of failed regulation in the building industry."

"You shouldn't have a combustible product on the outside of a building of this type, so how has this been allowed to happen?" - Fire officer

"You can't tell me that if this product, by all reports, has been used widely in the industry for 10 to 30 years, that major suppliers ... didn't know where this product was going to end up." - Fire officer

"There's people out there that would have absolutely no idea what they're doing and they're installing it incorrectly, and they're the people we compete against every day." - Builder

"Everyone has someone else to point the finger at. The product of deregulation and self accreditation, this process of abrogation of responsibility is that no one is responsible." - Federal politician

DOMAIN: "Cladding is the asbestos of 2017’: experts fear apartment cladding crisis"

'For every 10 apartment blocks in Australia with aluminium cladding, around eight face the risk that they’re covered in the highly combustible materials that caused the Grenfell fire in London'

.... “We should be very concerned,” said Chris Duggan, president of Strata Community Australia NSW. “We typically have a close working relationship with this government, but they’ve had a tepid response to this major issue."

“There’s been a lack of leadership from the government. We would like them to come up with a 10-point plan of what’s going to be done, but without that leadership, and information about what’s a very complex issue, a lot of people will go their own way.

“Making buildings safe will cost tens of millions of dollars. There’s a chain of responsibility and at the moment, owners are at the bottom of the pile.”

"kids don't fly" - window safety locks to be installed by 13th March 2018.

An increasing number of children have been admitted into hospital as a result from falling from windows. In response, the NSW government launched the “kids don’t fly campaign” and a change in legislation requiring window safety locks to be installed by 13th March 2018.

 

Residents will still be able to open their windows but will have the security of knowing that children will be safe when the window is open. Speak to your strata team to ensure your building is compliant.
