Event description

Description


Find out what you REALLY need to know about building alterations before you spend money you don't need to.


In this pratical, interractive 1 day workshop you will go through sections 112, 115 and 116 of the Building Act and unpack exactly what you need to know, and how to do a cost effective assessement of a building.



Making additions or alterations to older buildings requires fire assessment and access audits of the whole building.

These can be costly and unexpected for the building owner or tenants doing fit outs. Some designers tell their owners they need a new sprinkler OR to replace an old alarm. This workshop will equip you to know what is true and what is not, and how to find out when you are not sure.
