ACA Member Discount - Be Informed Briefing (NSW)

14 March 2019

Informed by Planned Cover is offering ACA members a special discounted rate for a seminar on working in the construction industry post the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

Informed by Planned Cover will present a panel of experienced professionals working in the construction industry to discuss how they are dealing with the practical and regulatory challenges of the post-Grenfell era.

Speakers Craig Burns (Technical Director, BVN),  Carlos Quaglia  (Fire Engineer/Managing Director,  Stephen Grubits and Associates) and Richard Choy (Chief Executive Officer, NATSPEC) will provide their insights into issues such as:

  • how relevant is Grenfell to Australia?
  • the Lacrosse fire and the BCA performance requirements;
  • specifying facade materials – it’s still not easy;
  • builder-initiated product substitutions;
  • responsibilities for verifying product compliance;
  • are current codes, standards and legislation enough to drive the development of better products and materials?;
  • the imminent changes to the National Construction Code (NCC 2019).
