Cladding audit results showing no properties represent a safety risk is a reassuring outcome that is a vote of confidence in South Australian building, Master Builders SA says.
Chief Executive Officer Ian Markos said the audit – undertaken by the State Government, the Metropolitan Fire Service and the City of Adelaide – was to be applauded for its deliberate and grounded approach.
“The State Government has done the right thing by taking a measured approach, not creating panic and fear when there was little cause,” he said.
“There are rules, procedures and standards in place for a good reason, and any review needs to target compliance with them at a national level to ensure the real risks – those of importing non-compliant products – are identified and managed.”
Mr Markos said the examination of fire safety systems to take place under the second phase was a vital check on essential safety systems.
