Fire Safety Order issued to the Australian Museum - AMRI Building at 1 Williams Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010 (MP06_0044, Sydney LGA)
On 25 October 2021, the Department issued a Fire Safety Order to the AMRI Building at the Australian Museum 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 Museum 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 Museum is required to implement and maintain fire safety measures to reduce the fire safety risks associated with the cladding until the rectification work is complete.
