Recent regulatory changes in Australia have resulted in new laws being put in place for new and existing buildings with combustible cladding. The Melbourne City Council advised Quay West that the cladding on the feature fin, which runs down the entire length of the façade and other locations around the building, did not comply with the new regulations.
Quay West OC and Accor Australia engaged Gallagher Jeffs to deliver Project Management and Superintendent Services for the remediation works.
