Following the tragic fire at the Grenfell Tower in London in 2017 and the fire at the Lacrosse Building in Melbourne in 2014, new laws have been made for buildings with combustible cladding. The laws are part of a whole-of-government response to the fire safety risks posed by external combustible cladding.
Our Team at RCR Services recently completed removal of Aluminium Composite Panels “Combustible Cladding” back to the original concrete substrate, to a mixed use retail and office dwelling on the Mid North Coast. We like to think outside of the box here at RCR, so we discussed options with the owners, one option was that new compliant Aluminium core cladding could be installed to match the recently removed cladding finish or, a rendered finish to the precast concrete panels could be applied. The owners decided upon a rendered finish saving them a huge dollar sum on overall cost of the project, here are the results.
