About this Event - 13 August 2021

This is a two-part event concentrating on the residential sector for building surveyors.

Part 1- Light Gauge Steel Frames – Residential:

With steel frames being widely accepted and used in Australia, this training event has been developed in consultation with Bluescope steel to detail the approval mechanisms for building surveyors when accepting, approving and inspecting light gauge steel frames in Queensland.

    Good practice vs compliance mechanisms to NCC.

Part 2 - Approving Residential Buildings in Flood Prone Areas:

A changing climate has placed increasing pressure on building surveyors to ensure that residential buildings that are built in flood hazard areas will be able to withstand the forces of a major flooding event.  

A review of the NCC with respect to flooding and the ABCB Standard for Construction of buildings in flood hazard areas will be reviewed in this specific training event.
