With major concerns raised at the forum, media interest was piqued with Domain echoing that cladding is the asbestos of 2017 and CEO of Lannock, Paul Morton, catching up with Channel 7 News, Sky News and 2GB Radio to discuss strata fire safety in further detail.

The ABC later joined the conversation with Four Corner’s damning investigation into the dangerous legacy of failed regulation in the building industry.

Michael Bleby from the AFR was soon questioning when to worry about your apartment’s cladding and will buildings struggle to get insurance.
