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 follows on from Cladding Remediation: Part A and will focus on problem solving for typical façade and cladding defects.
You’ll learn about processes and technical insights for several remediation approaches using real-life examples and case studies to help apply your skills and knowledge in practice.
This course is delivered in partnership with Office of the NSW Building Commissioner.
