The ‘Future Tech Building’is located on the Australian Country Choice property at 117 Colmslie Road Cannon Hill Qld 4170.
The building was originally built as a beef processing facility in the late 1980s. It has not functioned as a processing facility for a number of years and is currently used by the property owner as a storage facility for palletised cartons, documents and other miscellaneous goods.
The building owner intended to use the building as a permanent storage facility for palletised encapsulated cartons, file storage and miscellaneous storage. The building owner recognised that there might be some fire safety compliance issues that need to be addressed so that the building could be lawfully utilised and occupied for such use.
Fire Check Consultants (FCC) were commissioned to undertake a fire safety audit for compliance of the building with codes and regulations applicable at time of inspection. This provided the building owner with an outline of the non-compliant areas that needed to be addressed for lawful use and occupation of the building.The fire safety audit inspection was assessed against the relevant provisions of Parts C, D &E of the Building Code of Australia and the Building Fire and Safety Regulation.
FCC provided a professional engineering opinion under the BCA Section A, Part A2, A2.2 “Evidence of Suitability”.
