On 26 June 2019, the Department issued a fire safety order to the owners of the building at 438 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood, to remove identified external wall panels on the building consisting of aluminium composite panels (ACP). ACP is combustible and poses a fire safety risk.
The ACP on the subject building is located to 6 metres of the eastern side of the pool enclosure.
The owner is required to replace the ACP with a non-combustible product and provide an inspection report 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 verify the presence of fire sprinklers on all balconies and winter gardens and continue to implement interim fire safety measures to reduce fire safety risks associated with the cladding until the rectification work is complete.
