Australia | Touchstone – Lacrosse Judgement Summary

| Melbourne

Our Leaders Luncheons provide heads-up awareness and a unique opportunity for candid dialogue amongst leaders; which lends resilience to each firm.

The owners of apartments at Melbourne’s Lacrosse tower in Docklands have been awarded more than $5.7 million in damages in a lawsuit launched after a fire fuelled by flammable cladding caused significant damage to the building in November 2014.

It was the first major building fire in Melbourne caused by combustible cladding, which is now a serious and global issue.

On 1 April 2019 the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal ordered the further amount of just under $7m to be paid for the costs of bringing the building into compliance, various other heads of claimed loss and interest.

During this luncheon, DFC Members Colin Biggers and Paisley will provide an overview of the judgement and the need to know for leaders of design consulting firms.

Attendance is by invitation.
