On 22 March 2019, the Department issued a fire safety order to the owners of the building at 1, 3, 14 Epping Park Drive, 32, 34 Ferntree Place and 27, 29 Seven Street, Epping, to remove all 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 site is located on the southern elevations of both building 10 and 17. 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 also required to develop and implement interim fire safety measures to reduce the fire safety risk associated with the cladding until the rectification work is complete.
