Event Overview

Disaster is often the catalyst for change to bring learning and awareness across the industry. The Grenfell Tower fire in London, unfortunately, became a poster child for the seriousness of combustible cladding on buildings. There had been the Lacrosse Tower fire before that, and certainly, with the Spencer Street Fire, the Victorian government has sprinted into action, taking over the reins from the local councils handling some of the state’s riskiest apartment buildings with combustible cladding.

Corpolinx, therefore, is hosting its 2nd Annual Fire Safety and Cladding Summit, scheduled for 16-17 July 2019, in Melbourne, Australia. The event brings together the complete 360-degree stakeholders of fire safety and construction industry, from regulators to consultants to engineers to surveyors and material suppliers and beyond. The conference will focus on the absolute latest information from all angles of the industry to promote best practices in fire safety practice, engineering and risk management. The event will shed light on some recent changes in the regulatory landscape, including analysis of the Lacrosse judgment and what it means for the stakeholders moving forward, as well as insurance and indemnity issues.

If you are involved in the fabrics of this industry, we invite you to please join us when these discussions and exclusive networking sessions take place to discuss challenges and assess solutions and services in this space.
