Bringing together government, building owners, developers, certifiers and fire safety professionals for a safer and more compliant Australian building industry.

Bringing together leaders from government, building and construction and emergency services to explore the critical issues in ensuring compliance with building standards and fire safety. Industry leaders will share the outcomes of state-wide audits; where accountability lies in the building supply chain and compliance obligations; innovations in fire safety measures; the role of local government in protecting their communities and enhancing standards for safer building practices. 

This two-day event, incorporating a one-day conference and one-day in depth workshop will provide you with:
  • Outcomes of state-wide building audits 
  • Strategies on how to better protect firefighters and civilians from Non-Conforming Building Product-related incidents
  • Insights into the role local councils have played in protecting their communities and ratepayers
  • Knowledge on how to enhance standards and certification for safer building practices
This event is specifically designed to examine the key links in the building product supply chain. At the event we will examine new legislation governing construction standards and fire safety issues; local case studies on fire incidents will be under the microscope and we will strive to understand what is necessary to improve certification processes for safer building standards in Australia in the future. 

In February of this year, the Safe Cladding and Buildings Summit in Sydney was an overwhelming success. The feedback before and during the event indicated the need for this event.To this end we are pleased to announce the second edition of Safe Cladding and Buildings Summit to be held in Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne.
