Project Management Explained 
Article contributed by Margo Grant, Business Development Manager - BOSS Building Maintenance

Planning, organising, and managing a building maintenance project can be stressful and take up valuable time and resources. From organising reliable, qualified, and competent trades to developing a site risk management plan to ensure safe project completion all takes time, effort and skill. Other necessary considerations include knowledge of required building and compliance standards and meeting the expectations of the body corporate.

If not planned and executed well, coordinating building maintenance can lead to a tangled web of financial, compliance and possibly even further unexpected maintenance issues. Self-managed projects can lead to unwanted stress and often give a false sense of economy, especially when unintended ‘band-aiding’ of maintenance problems occur.

Article contributed by Lynda Kypriadakis, Managing Director – Diverse FMX

Is your building one of the thousands of bodies corporate that contains some form of combustible cladding in Australia? Are you registered on the Queensland Safer Buildings Cladding Register and heading toward the Stage 3b deadline? Are you wondering what to do next?

The Building and Other Legislation [Cladding] Amendment Regulation 2018 [Queensland] was introduced as an amendment to the Building Regulation 2006 [Queensland] in October 2018. It essentially outlaws the use of combustible cladding materials in Class 2-9, Type A and B construction in new buildings, and requires removal [or risk management] if installed in buildings older than 1st January 1994, built prior to 1st October 2018.

Read on and learn about timelines for compliance and how to fulfil your obligations.
