Fairview delivers and sponsors a range of events aimed to help our industry navigate the current climate of Australian construction, where fire compliance and safety of cladding products is a major focus.

Upcoming Industry Events

Fairview attend and sponsor a number of events throughout the year as an opportunity to connect with the industry, share valuable information and learnings and as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping abreast of industry trends, policies and regulations.

Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 (NSW) Webinar

DATE: April 2021

The Design and Building Practitioners Act forms part of the NSW Government’s response to the Shergold Weir Report which focused on the shortcomings in the implementation of the National Construction Code following concerns raised at the national level about building defects and combustible cladding.

With draft regulations for this Act having been released recently, we know that Architects and Specifiers will be expected to hold more liability in specifying compliant products and subsequently have a significant impact on the design process.

Join us to hear from our line up of presenters (including representatives from Engineers Australia, Lander and Rogers, Building Designers Association of Australia and many other industry bodies) on what the Act entails, what applies now and what future implications may look like from 2021 upon the release of regulations. Our presenters will join a panel during the webinar to answer any questions.
