Cladding Replacement

Construction Projects

Existing residential buildings which have external wall systems that contain combustible materials may not meet an appropriate standard of safety and could pose a significant risk to the health and safety of residents, other building users, people in the proximity of the building or firefighters. External walls of residential buildings should not assist the spread of fire, irrespective of height. It is important therefore to understand both the materials used in the external wall construction and whether the entire system has been designed, installed, and maintained appropriately.
