Combustible Cladding - Extension of Deadlines
The State Government has extended the deadlines for compliance with Stages 2 and 3a of the Safer Buildings Program which requires certain building owners to take steps to identify potentially combustible cladding on existing private buildings in Queensland.
The Stage 2 deadline is extended to 31 July 2019 and Stage 3a until 31 October 2019.
If your building is caught by the process, Stage 2 requires you to engage a building professional to complete a statement regarding your building, and Stage 3a requires you to engage a fire engineer and notify the Queensland Building and Construction Commission that you have done so.

If you require assistance complying with the Regulation please contact a member of our Construction Team. If you are buying or selling a property that might be affected by the Regulation please contact a member of our Commercial + Property Team.
