More Lacrosse Building Practitioners to face disciplinary action

Thursday June 30 2016

The Victorian Building Authority (VBA), the regulator of the building and plumbing industries, has referred two more building practitioners involved in the building of the Lacrosse Apartments in Melbourne's Docklands, for disciplinary action by the Building Practitioners Board (BPB).

Following a fire at the Lacrosse building which resulted in the evacuation of all residents, the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) reviewed the cause of the fire and issued a Post Incident Analysis Report. The MFB report concluded that the external aluminium cladding on the building contributed to the spread of fire and did not comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA). As a result, the VBA launched an investigation into the building practitioners involved.
