Join us for the next Future Opportunities in the Built Environment breakfast on June 6. Registration opens 7am for 7.30am start - 9.15am
The panel discussion will cover the significant impacts of non-conforming products across the industry, what is being done and what more needs to be done.
As stated by the WA Government Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, the risks and problems associated with non-conforming building products (including those relating to health, cost remediation, safety and legal issues) can consequently affect everyone and anyone in building and construction, including parties involved in designing and engineering, assessment and approvals, manufacturing or importing, buying and selling, building or occupying.
The following representatives will cover a range of perspectives on this topical issue :
· Craig Muir, Service Line Leader for Architecture, Interiors and Landscape at GHDWoodhead
· Cos Cirocco, National Business Manager, Planned Cover
· Dr Peter Key, National Technical Development Manager, Australian Steel Institute
Members of the hosting organisations are eligible for the member ticket price - Australian Institute of Architects, Australian Institute of Building, Consult Australia, Engineers Australia and Master Builders Association WA.
