Boundary constraints and tight construction timelines mean the 1m distance could not be maintained and specified cladding materials could not be changed.
Fireshell F1E allowed for the reclassification of the pine cladding to meet the Type A construction heat release values and the specified cladding material to be utilised.
Pine weatherboards could be utilised on the build and meet the client’s cost and architectural finish requirements.
