  • How will these changes impact buildings other than ‘HRRB’ and over what timeframe will we start to see clarity?
  • How are these changes impacting industry directly (from design and build through to occupancy and maintenance)?
  • What does it take to achieve transparency of fire information throughout the building lifecycle?
  • What obstacles and challenges are organisations experiencing in applying change (processes, finances, skills and competencies, culture) and do we have a skills gap?
  • Is culture really shifting from ‘web of blame’ to ownership and accountability?
