NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 14 July 2021, the Department issued Fire Safety Orders to the owners of the University of Technology Sydney - Faculty of Engineering and IT (Building 11) at 81-117 Broadway, Ultimo NSW 2007, to remove identified external wall panels on the buildings consisting of Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP). ACP is combustible and poses a fire safety risk. The owner is required to replace the ACP with a non – combustible product and provide inspection reports issued by an accredited certifier, certifying that the replacement panels and method of installation comply with the Building Code of Australia. The owner is required to develop and implement fire safety measures to reduce the fire safety risks associated with the cladding until the rectification works are complete.
