We Are Getting More Stressed – Wait for Government to Fix Cladding Nightmare

Cladding – Safety, Compliance and Solutions Forum (Wednesday 23 October 2019)

Part 3A Deadline of the Cladding is Due October 31st (SSKB Strata Managers)

***Attention Queensland***
In Queensland, the cladding compliance consisted of a three-part process. The part 1 deadline was at the beginning of the year on 29 March and required buildings to register using an online system and complete the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Safer Building checklist. The checklist was made up of 4 questions. Upon completion of the checklist, you would be prompted to sign a declaration and would either be finished with the cladding checklist, or pushed to progress into part 2. 

Buildings that were required to move on to part 2 had to engage a building industry professional, complete the combustible cladding checklist (part 2) and upload the signed and witnessed checklist and building industry professional statement. Depending on the answers uploaded to the online checklist, you would again either be finished with the cladding checklist or pushed to progress into part 3. 

In Queensland, part 3a is the next deadline that is approaching on 31 October 2019.  This will require all buildings that are progressing to part 3 to engage a fire engineer and register the fire engineer’s details on the Combustible Cladding Checklist. 

Part 3b will then need to be completed before the 3 May 2021.  This will require the fire engineer to complete a building fire safety risk assessment and statement.  These two documents will then need to be uploaded and the online checklist will then need to be filled out and completed.
