    “LEGAL LIABILITY AND NON-CONFORMING BUILDING PRODUCTS: AN EXAMINATION OF THE FLAMMABLE CLADDING SCANDAL ENGULFING THE WORLD”


    With guest speakers:

    Petrina MacPherson, Senior Associate, Minter Ellison
    Mark Steele, Barrister, Northbank Chambers
    Sarah Cahill, Lawyer, Minter Ellison


    Petrina MacPherson, Mark Steele and Sarah Cahill will cover both the Lacrosse fire in Melbourne and the recent Grenfell fire in London, the background behind the use of aluminium cladding in Australia, issues regarding the scientific testing of cladding, relevant provisions of the BCA, Australia’s current position in respect of cladding, the proposed “Non-conforming Building Products – Chain of Responsibility and Other Matters Amendment Bill (Qld) 2017" and legal liability which may arise in circumstances where non-conforming cladding has been used in Australian high-rise buildings.  


    Be sure to join us on 9 August for what promises to be a very interesting discussion on a very current and serious topic in the building industry, not just here in Queensland but around the world.  


    We look forward to seeing you.
