New Smoke Alarm Laws!!
At BuildingPro, we care about the safety of your buildings so we want you to know about new legislation that will make Queensland households the safest in Australia with respect to fire safety.
Queensland dwellings will soon be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling, and on every level.
From 1st January 2017 a 10-year phased roll-out will apply over three specific periods as follows:
From 1 January 2017
In all new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings(this applies to building applications submitted from 1 January 2017)
From 1 January 2022
In all domestic dwellings leased and sold
From 1 January 2027
In all other domestic dwellings
