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. The fire kickstarted introspection of our own buildings in Australia, and whilst there had been the Lacrosse Tower fire pre-Grenfell, and fires post-Grenfell, we have dodged a major catastrophe. The introspection has, however, highlighted a combustible cladding crisis we have on our home front. In recent news, NSW Better Regulation Minister Kevin Anderson said that a whopping 553 NSW buildings still require assessment over flammable cladding concerns. Our building practices and the construction industry has come under fire; threatening businesses, lives and livelihoods.

Corpolinx, therefore, is hosting its 2nd Annual Fire Safety and Cladding Summit, scheduled for 26-27 November 2019, in Sydney, Australia. The event brings together the complete 360-degree stakeholders within the fire safety and construction industry – from regulators to government agencies; consultants and lawyers; insurance providers and underwriters; engineers; surveyors and certifiers; as well as material suppliers and beyond. The conference will focus on the absolute latest information from all angles of the industry including the changing regulatory landscape to promote best practices in fire safety in buildings.

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 and industry experts discuss challenges and assess solutions and services in this space.
