Many strata buildings built since the 1990’s contain some form of external cladding as part of their construction.

A significant number of these strata buildings contain cladding that is highly flammable and combustible such as The Lacrosse Building Fire in Melbourne in 2014, and the Grenfell Tower disaster in London in 2017 which now lay bare.

Building owners including owners corporations are now left to deal with what steps to now take to rectify the problem.  A number of buildings, including strata residential buildings of two storeys or more, with certain types of cladding systems, have recently had to register their building under the planning regulation.
