Brush up on build­ing code

Pilbara News - - News -

The Build­ing Com­mis­sion will make a stopover in Kar­ratha next month to up­date the lo­cal build­ing in­dus­tries on mat­ters re­lat­ing to the Build­ing Code of Aus­tralia and roof com­pli­ance.

Re­gional sem­i­nars are sched­uled in Bun­bury, Bus­sel­ton, Al­bany, Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der, Northam, Geraldton, Kar­ratha and Broome.

The morn­ing ses­sion will cover prod­uct cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and tech­ni­cal in­ter­pre­ta­tion of com­mon queries, as well as the min­i­mum level of doc­u­men­ta­tion re­quired for roof­ing.

The af­ter­noon ses­sion will be ded­i­cated to a pre­sen­ta­tion about check­ing roof com­pli­ance on-site.

Build­ing Com­mis­sioner Peter Gov en­cour­aged lo­cal builders and in­ter­ested par­ties to at­tend. “The Build­ing Com­mis­sion car­ries out reg­u­lar au­dits and in­spec­tions, which help us to iden­tify po­ten­tial prob­lem ar­eas and work with the in­dus­try to deal with them be­fore they pose a se­ri­ous threat,” he said.

“While the is­sues re­lat­ing to in­ad­e­quate roof tie-downs are not con­fined to any par­tic­u­lar area of West­ern Aus­tralia, we are com­mit­ted to shar­ing in­for­ma­tion on the find­ings of our com­pli­ance ac­tiv­i­ties and the Build­ing Code of Aus­tralia with build­ing in­dus­tries across the State to en­sure the high qual­ity of work­man­ship we typ­i­cally see in re­gional ar­eas con­tin­ues.” The Kar­ratha ses­sion will be at Wel­come Lotteries House on April 27.
