Cladding remediation is a professional service that involves identifying the issues that cause façade defects and determining the corrective actions to provide long-term solutions for the integrity, safety and stability of a building façade.
When done correctly, remediation of a façade will help to extend the service life of both a building and building façade.
This course develops a general understanding of façades and cladding, common defects, and the recommended course of action to address such defects.
You’ll learn how to predict façade defects in designs, use best practice façade remediation analysis methods, and determine potential causes of a defect.
This course is followed by Cladding Remediation: Part B which focuses on problem solving for typical façade and cladding defects.
This course is delivered in partnership with Office of the NSW Building Commissioner.
