Are you required to engage with a fire engineer to assess your building?
The Queensland Government’s Safer Buildings program aims to identify buildings that may contain potentially combustible cladding.
Owners of buildings in Queensland may be required to register theri building and complete the combustible cladding checklist.
If your building is still an affected building following the completion of Part 2, the online checklist will require you to complete Part 3. Part 3 requires you to engage with a fire engineer and register their details on the combustible cladding checklist by 31 October 2019.
Registered Professional Engineers of Queensland (RPEQs) registered in Fire or Fire Safety engineering can complete the building fire safety risk assessment and prepare a fire engineer statement. Currently there are 147 Fire or Fire Safety RPEQs registered with The Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland.
