FIRE WALLS

Firewalls are becoming common place in the building industry as we see an increase in attached Townhouses and Duplex developments. A fire wall is designed to provide an occupancy with a minimum Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 60/60/60 for Class 1 buildings (Residential Dwellings) which translates to 1 hour of fire protection.

PRE-INSTALLATION POOL FENCE INSPECTION

Pool fencing can be bit tricky to get right. So to help ensure that the fence is compliant at final inspection stage, it’s great to have a discussion about what is needed before it gets ordered and installed. Today, we checked out the pool at a Coorparoo development we are providing private certification for. The project consists of a new multi storey residential dwelling with significant retaining walls to the rear of the property which work the levels of the site so as optimised use of the available spaces.
