Paul of Phase Change
A light weight thermal mass, this stuff is incredible! Paul showed everyone how it works this was amazing. Check it out and ask for a sample.
A general discussion was held to discuss the changes to our industry - Schedules (directions specified list), BAL ratings, and new OHS laws. There was a lot of confusion and lack of direction by Building Control on some of these items, a open forum is be arranged between BDAT, Building Control, AIBS, in Hobart, Launceston and Devonport so book your space so these items can be clarified.
Jeremy Ferguson was presented with his Associate Membership.
Looking forward to catching up with everyone at the next meeting in Hobart 21st March. Remember this meeting will be free to current members
