Strengthening confidence in the industry
Over the last few years there have been a number of high profile cases of multi-storey buildings being poorly constructed, using non-compliant building products. In 2017 the construction industry was faced with the Grenfell Tower fire in London – a stark reminder of the narrowly escaped disaster at Melbourne’s Lacrosse Tower years earlier. More recently, an independent report has found multiple design and construction faults led to damage at western Sydney’s Opal Tower, and the fire at Melbourne’s NEO200 tower has brought focus back onto the cladding crisis.
Governments have since joined together, working towards a nationally consistent approach to resolve these issues. The 2018 Weir and Shergold report highlighted the issue of non-compliant building products and made recommendations to improve compliance and enforcement of regulation in the industry.
