Safe Buildings and Defects Management Summit, Brisbane
Conference: 27-28 February 2020
Systemic building defects pose a significant danger for the future of the Australian building and construction sector. From cracking apartment buildings to widespread cases of combustible external cladding, building defects have become an all-too familiar item in newspaper headlines. The extent of the problem has shattered public confidence in the industry, with many stakeholders declaring it has reached crisis levels. With building defect remediation costs projected to reach $6.2 billion nationwide, industry, government and building owners are scrambling to determine the stakeholders responsible, how to finance and remediate the multi-billion dollar problem and what needs to be done to prevent these issues from happening again.
The Safe Buildings & Defects Management Summit 2020 is a must-attend event for the entire building product supply chain. Building on its success over the last two years, the event will bring together key government policy makers and building and construction industry professionals from across the nation to develop strategies to mitigate the risk of defects, finance remediation and build confidence in the sector.
