Alspec invites you to the first briefing on new research the company has funded that shines much needed light on building product selection and information.

This information will apply to all building products so this is a presentation not to be missed.

Authored by Dr Nicole Johnston of Strata Knowledge, and Michael Teys, the research focuses on how building products are selected and what information is presently available and accessible to building product specifiers from manufacturers’ and suppliers’ websites.

At this briefing you will hear from research co-author, Michael Teys on the report’s findings and how architects, designers, and building professionals will need to get new information about the building products they select, including:

  • The suitability of the building product for its intended use;
  • How (not just if) the building product meets the relevant Australian Standards;
  • Circumstances, conditions, and restrictions where it is safe to use the building product;
  • Instructions on installation; and,
  • How the building product must be used to remain compliant with the NCC.
