20/09/2022 – Webinar: Recent Court Rulings on Cladding Claims

missed webinar

Our September webinar is an important update for consultants who work on cladding rectification projects, or who have exposure to historical cladding claims, as well as an illustration of how the courts’ interpretation and application of the non-combustibility requirements in the National Construction Code are evolving over time.

It’s not surprising that everyone is alarmed by ACP cladding given the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017 and events since then.  Recent decisions however indicate that there is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to ACPs, and regard needs to be had to product types and configurations in order to assess the danger of ACPs and their immediate removal from buildings.

Join us for our upcoming webinar where Matthew Smith, James Rigney and Zachary Brown, lawyers of Clyde and Co will discuss:

  • recent judgments in the jurisdictions of NSW, Victoria and the UK and their findings; and
  • the implications of these decisions for construction professionals.
  • Event Information:
